    There was no adult birds seen, unfortunately.

    Idk, i can’t really tell with the photo.😕

    IDK maybe Inca Dove, they nest about 6” to 50′ above the ground.

    It is the little twigs and leafs on the bottom.

    Hmmmm…could be! But this is on the ground, and it was not here a few days ago. So it can’t be abandoned or it could, cause it might have fell out of the tree during a storm. But it seems like it was placed there. Anyways I’ll do more research about the Inca dove. BTW I just found a black-bellied whistling-duck nest in our tree! I’ve never seen ducks perch or sit on a nest in a tree!

    I don’t know what bird made this, but it could be one of the nests that male birds sometimes make in order to impress the females with their nesti-making techniques!

    Hi Oaklynn, My first impression is that these materials have either blown down from an overhanging nest, or that the builder is dropping lots of material during the building process. Most ground-nesting birds do not use twigs; they either lay eggs directly on the ground, or scrape together nearby vegetation into a mound. So, what do you see if you look above this site?

    OK, thank you all for all of your help!
