  1. The first one looks like a blue Jay nest or if you have a field with mice in it it could be a some type of hawk. The second or third one looks like a Robin, Bluebird,thrush or a mockingbird.I think it is a bluebird but if you think it’s one of those birds that I listed,think that then.

  2. Texas Bird Family says:

    They are little nests. WAY too small to be a hawk I’m doing nest ID. Doesn’t look like a robin or mockingbird. I’m guessing a Cardinal. The picture looks just like it.

  3. I think the second and third one is a Bluebird.

  4. Texas Bird Family says:

    The first nest was a tiny bit bigger than the others. I think there all cardinal nests.

  5. Texas Bird Family says:

    Or Blue Jay. We saw the “Cowbird” It’s a blue jay.

  6. Texas Bird Family says:

    The nests aren’t in our yard. There at a park. We never had a nest in our yard.

  7. Texas Bird Family says:

    We don’t have really any trees in our backyard where a bird could nest… 😞

  8. Texas Bird Family says:

    We don’t have any nestboxes sadly. We do have a lot of store-bought and homemade bird feeders.

  9. Texas Bird Family says:

    Any ideas?

  10. My final guesses are: a cardinal or a Bluebird or a blue jay. But it could be a tufted titmouse’s nest:20%.

  11. Texas Bird Family says:

    I rarely see titmice. We never see at our feeders.
