I found this nest being built on 4/16/2017, and found it almost/fully completed on 4/17/2017.
We have seen a pair of birds, brown in color, leaving the nest, but they are too quick for me to identify.
This nest is about 6-7 feet off the ground, on top of a support beam for our deck above. The inside is filled with some sort of sand or grit that was not originally there when the deck was built.
This is definitely a brand new nest, and the first time we have seen birds building a nest under our deck. Your help is greatly appreciated!
~Take care, Kat

    Hi, Did your photo come out upside down? Let me know, and I can turn it the other way. It looks like it’s floating in air!

    This appears to be the nest of an Eastern Phoebe.

      Hi Robyn! No, I’m sorry, the picture is correct. That’s exactly how it looks under my deck.
      The second picture was taken at a slight angle, mostly because I can’t fit my camera under the support beams completely. I will keep my eye out for an Eastern Phoebe!

    I think it is UNDER the deck so if you think of it that way, it is rght-side up.
