We visited the nest later than we wanted today, (Almost dusk) we thought that the mother would be there. When we saw there was no mother we took the video of the nest and saw, it was empty! The nest wasn’t damaged so was probably a Blue Jay, Crow, or squirrel. Hopefully, we can find another nest to watch soon.
Barney hatched today! Now we’re waiting for Tweet! Happy Birthday Barney!! He has a few downy feathers on his back. His eyes are closed.
The nest is made of sticks and leaves. It’s at least 1 square foot, but possibly a little larger. It’s about 60 feet up but I’m not good with guessing height measurements. It’s towards the top of the tree, in a crotch from the main trunk. I have no idea how old it is, so I’m unsure if there was a body of water nearby when the nest was built. It’s a forest habitat, and a little bit of ways from the nest is an area that floods easily. I’ve seen Red-Shouldered Hawks, Red-Tailed Hawks, and Broad-Winged Hawks in my area. I’m guessing it’s a Red-Shouldered Hawk nest, but a Cooper’s Hawk nest is also pretty likely. Any ID help is appreciated!
Of the 3 eggs in the Cardinal nest, only 2 hatched, they were named Red and Ruby. We went on vacation for a week so I wasn’t able to check on the nest until we got back. When we got back they were gone so I’m hoping they fledged. I removed the egg from the nest.
Northern Mockingbird nest at Paul D Rushing Chain of Lakes. Update: Tweet and Barney haven’t hatched yet. I hope they hatch soon! This nest is near the side of the road in between two ditches.
Tweet and Barney. Tweet is the lighter one and Barney is the darker one.
Used nest. Hoping someone can ID them.
1 blue jay egg. Appears to be infertile as the baby blue jay already fledged. There used to be two eggs. There was an eggshell in the nest.
Only one robin left. I guess the others fledged already.
Mockingbird nest with 2 eggs and used nest needs ID
A better picture of the Blue Jay showing the eggs. The eggs are very light blue with brown speckles. In the first picture, there is the baby and one egg and in the second picture there is the baby and if you look carefully you can see one egg and one egg hiding under the baby. The third picture shows the eggs. The 3rd picture is older.
It’s NOT a cowbird! It’s a blue jay! We saw it today and it has blue feathers, a black beak, and white and black on its face. The two eggs didn’t hatch so they are probably infertile.
Three baby robins in a pine tree.
A better picture of the Cowbird. What a sweet little cowbird. It’s taking good care of its not yet hatched Cardinal siblings.
Three nests need ID. The 1st was about 10 feet high in an oak tree. The 2nd was in a small oak about two feet from the ground and the same with the 3rd.
Baby Cowbird in a nest. Eggs need ID. White with brown speckles. The eggs are about an inch long. There are two eggs. The nest was made of mostly sticks and lots of white down feathers. Any ID?
The babies were sleeping when I got there but I accidentally woke them up. The last egg hasn’t hatched yet. It’s siblings hatched sometimes between the 18th and the 20th.

Two of the three Northern Cardinal eggs have hatched! They’re so cute. They hatched sometime between the 18th and today. I need name suggestions for these two!
Two nests I found in a shrub/tree in one of my relative’s yard. One is an active Brown Thrasher nest with three eggs. The other is right next to it about 6 feet high and it is made of sticks, a pink string, and some other random materials. I didn’t get a good look at the inside.
I had photographed the female with a stick in her mouth on the 1st, and I found the nest but wasn’t sure if it was actually a nest. Then I went to double check on the 11th and sure enough it was! I’m so excited to get to watch them grow up!
we visited this nest and it was destroyed.
A northern mockingbird nest found at 2 eggs, a few days later it had progressed to 4.
i want to put a photo on nest watch to share it
Tanager nest with 3 nestlings. One appears to have a redder gape than the others. There is no obvious size or color difference.
Small nest disturbed while weeding Three ~1/2″ speckled greenish eggs … don’t know what bird is most likely
Found these photos from years ago.

The Ocean City, NJ rookery is an extraordinary place. It affords easy, safe and unobtrusive photography as well as monitoring of 5 different species of herons as well as Glossy Ibises.
One gull was flushed from the nest as another joined in harassing from a few feet above as this visitor strolled by to check on the nest.
Located in a tree next to a sidewalk on a busy local street, these Cooper’s hawk chicks were well fed by their parents. Not bothered by passers by or local photographers, they grew up fast and all fledged soon after these photos were taken!
Built remarkably close to a road, this Eagle’s nest offered a rare opportunity to view their care of this nestling.
The Grebes successfully raised 5 of the 7 babies in the little lake at Lake Park in Louisville, CO
I saw cardinals building this nest and have never seen a bird nest like this! I don’t want to use this door and destroy the nest. It is now November, so the little ones are gone. Should i leave the nest alone? Will they come back? It is a perfectly protected area for a nest – smart cardinals!
This nest is in the rafters of our barn which is a small building with no door providing good flying access. The nest is built right alongside another Robin nest that i am pretty sure never got used.
This robin mom built a nest in a day, lay egg #1 the following morning, then lay eggs #2-#5 on each of the following days. Photos were taken with a 4K security camera set up to monitor the nest and stream it live on YouTube https://youtu.be/p29GzrtkJhY
This heron is taking a break from incubation.
Notice the pines are framing his face.
As I was about to go on a hike with my parents and younger sister, I saw a grayish bird fly into a bent tree. I took a few more steps and looked harder, trying to figure out what kind of bird it was. Then I realized it was sitting on a nest! I slowly approached the nest and the bird flew away. I peered inside and, to my delight and surprise, found a beautiful baby blue egg!!! This is the first active nest I’ve found this year! Time to start NestWatch patrolling!!!
I have had a pair of Orioles nest on the side of our house. Their nest has been built between a rolldown blind and a screen door, that we wedge in place so it will not move during nesting season. We have had 27 babies fledge from our site over the last 4 years. This year I plan to mount a nestcam to capture more of their behavior. I do have video, however that has not been loaded online yet
Junco baby about to fledge, it jumped from the nest basket (fuschia) into another basket (petunia) and then took off from here. Last baby Junco to fledge in 2020.
We used a GoPro camera tethered to a pool pole to check out this humming bird nest. We had observed it being built, and estimate it was completed on/about 25-Jul when the bird’s activity slowed considerably and the bird appeared to “sit” more.
For a few days, I noticed a male and female N. Cardinal repeatedly flying near a small cedar tree. I checked the tree and could not find a nest. So, I gave up. Then, on another day, I just had to check for a nest again because I was still seeing the adult cardinals in the area. This time, I found the nest with the fully feathered three nestlings inside. The parents did a great job building this nest in the thickest and most difficult part to access (for me) section of the tree.
On June 9, instead of climbing up a ladder to check on the nestlings in their mossy nest on the light fixture of our shed, I elected to take some photos. I was worried that getting too close would flush them too soon and I also wanted to confirm just how many nestlings were in the nest. Through out this nest watch, I had a difficult time counting the nestlings, as phoebes just don’t lift up their heads with wide open mouths like other species. (At least in my experience.) There were 5 eggs to start. When I did try to count the nestlings during my visits, I could basically only count three little beaks or maybe four. My final photo on June 10 around 10 AM, submitted here, shows four fully feathered youngsters, so ready to leave the nest. At 1 PM they were gone and I found one egg left in the nest. So, at last, it was confirmed that there were four fabulous phoebes added to this world. Good Luck to them!
A Blue-headed Vireo nest found right next to a hiking trail in Danby State Forest, and containing one Brown-headed Cowbird egg. Nest is about 5 feet off of the ground in a forest.
My dad took me to the Kentucky castle’s farm yesterday, and we found four active nests.
This Robin nestling is flapping its wings in preparation for learning to fly.
2 Robin Nestlings after the nest fell off the ceiling fan. I replaced the startled babies and they snuggled in to relax. I was able to replace the nest with assistance of packing tape.
4 Robin eggs!
Male Robin watches over nest and switches places when female returns. Eggs are 5-7 days old.
Eastern Phoebes have hatched! 3 or 4?
Notice the pink ribbon through the nest and tied to an adjacent limb? They unwound this from another limb and nest on the same tree when building their nest. They probably spent 3 hours on the ribbon. It is not just wrapped around the limb, it is tied.
House Finch nest of a pair that keeps visiting my feeder! There are also two other nests in the area.
Here is an unoccupied (as of right now) hummer nest. The mailman said there had been chicks in it earlier. Hopefully they all fledged safely!
American Robins have found the nesting shelf once again and of course built it on top instead of inside. or well thats there choice. Guess it gives them more room. I am glad they came back. Hoping it will be another sucessfully year because last year they must of had 5 eggs of last years nest and my mom and I saw two babies and when my dad cleaned the nest off the top 3 non viable eggs where left. My dad didnt think any babies survived but he didnt see want my mom and I saw. Two little beaks stuck theres heads out of last years nest so I guessing it was sucessful otherwise the robins wouldnt be back. I am happy they are though and will moniter them.
I took this photo on April 11, 2020. It is on the top of my front porch post underneath the roofline of my house.
I was walking down my street and my dog flushed the adult from the nest, that’s when I noticed the eggs.
On my porch, there is this little white hanging bench swing that is supposed to be a bird feeder, but I never filled it up. And now, there is a beautiful pair of House Finches nesting in it!
The eggs are SO cute!

First sited these eggs on 7.11.19. 7.22.19 very nasty storm came through. We had a lot of damage in our town but nothing too bad at our house. We duct taped hanging basket earlier in the day but were not home when storm came through. When we came home basket was still there, nest and eggs intact. Noticed Mama Bird next morning, but haven’t seen Papa Bird. This morning haven’t seen Mama Bird either. Could these eggs take that long to hatch?
For a few days the phoebe nestlings were poking their heads up. This nesting attempt started with 5 eggs. But I could only see three nestlings the entire time. The nest placement is in my shed and on top of the ceiling light fixture, so the nestlings were difficult to see.
I decided to take this photo to confirm the number of nestlings. As you can see, there are only three nestling visible, there may have been one or two more looking out the back of the nest. I’m not sure. But I will never know. That same day, three hours or so after I took this photo, the nest was empty.
