Description

Found this nest hanging is a tree. Located in the woods, about 50’ into the woods from the driveway. Height about 25’ off the ground. It’s about 4” outer diameter. I can’t seem to identify it on the nest watch page. Any ideas?

Hanging Nest

    It looks very much like the nest of a Baltimore Oriel we found hanging up high in our cottonwood tree a couple of years ago. I THINK they are the only birds around the states that make hanging nests… I think this, but am not certain.

    Hi Joseph, nests without eggs or associated adult birds are notoriously difficult to identify. That said, hanging nests like this are often built by vireos or orioles – given its size and shape, we are leaning towards a vireo species.

    Looks like a Vireo nest, but not certain.
