Description

I’m guessing this nest is from last year. Was in the center of my yard. Fascinating how birds recycle our garbage.

Found In Yard. Not Sure What Type Of Bird?

Not sure what type of nest this is. Great bird neighbors. They use recycled materials for their nest.

    Looks like it could be a Chipping Sparrow nest, but hard to say out of context. I would agree it’s from last year, as it’s still a bit early for them to be nesting in PA.

  2. Micah says:

    How big is the nest? It looks small by the paper towel.

  3. Lynn Plizga says:

    Very small. I thought it might be a hummingbird nest because of the size. But didn’t think that was hummingbird material.

  4. Robyn Bailey says:

    It’s not the right shape or size for a hummingbird nest. Those are small in diameter, and deep for their size. You can compare here: https://nestwatch.org/connect/hth-contest-2016/beautiful-nest/
