Bald Eagle nest from February
This is a Bald Eagle nest from February in 2022. These are a few of the photos I took. One of the adults was incubating eggs/babies while the other was perched in a tree not too far away. The adult in the tree then flew to the nest and I managed to catch a very tender moment where the adults touched their heads together.
We never followed back up on the nest after a couple of visits so I’m not sure what happened to the eggs or babies.
The owner of the land said that the bald eagles made the nest about 4 years ago, and since Bald Eagles can mate when they’re 4, I’m assuming this pair is about 8 years old. I can’t wait to monitor the nest this coming year!
I think the nest is about 5-6 feet tall and wide.
Birds Nest Needs ID
A very flat bird nest in a tree. It was about 4” from end to end.
I think this is a hummingbird nest that fell out of the tree.
There might be such thing as a rock pigeon I think!/ID please!

Happy Birthday Barney!!
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.
Nest needs id!
Nest ID please! Suspected hawk nest
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!

Nest ID help please!
Found this nest in a tree. It’s about 10 or 11 feet up and it appears to be hanging. It’s made of sticks, leaves, and pieces of plastic. It’s in a forest habitat. The nest appeared to be inactive, I couldn’t get a look inside. Any ideas of what it could be?
The last egg hasn’t hatched. Should I be worried?
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.

Brown Thrasher eggs and Nest ID help!
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.
Northern Cardinal eggs and nest
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!
Nest in a sign
Need ID for the nest. Very messy nest The nest with pretty small

we visited this nest and it was destroyed.
Unknown nest outcome
On June 9th we discovered a mockingbird nest with four eggs. We visited it again on June 14th. We visited a 3rd time on June 29th and were surprised to see the destroyed nest. Do you think that the eggs hatched and the babies fledged? We had a really bad storm with almost 60-mile winds.
Mourning Dove Nest
Mourning Dove nest in a dead palm tree with two babies! Both chicks fledged. The parents took turns with the babies.
Would appreciate any ID ideas.

Chocolate the Mourning Dove
Mourning Dove nest in our neighbor’s dead palm tree. Mother Mourning Dove with two chicks. Both chicks survived and fledged.
Blue Jay Nest
Blue Jay nest with 3 young. Sorry for the bad pictures. The was about 10 feet up.
I first thought the nest was empty. I did as was suggested by other nest watchers and took a video of the nest. Was surprised to see four Mockingbird eggs. Was close to the dog park.
Saw this nest about a week and a half ago and the mother and father were four feeding fluffy gray babies. We went to visit it a couple of days ago and we didn’t see the parents or chicks. It’s on a powerline and we were on the road so we couldn’t see the nest that well. Do you think it’s been abandoned?

2022 Male Pileated Working on Nest Cavity
April 2022, this male Pileated Woodpecker has been hard at work constructing a nest cavity space for the nesting season. What a beautiful fella, this photo looked almost like a painting!
Male Pileated Woodpecker Working on Nest Cavity
This gorgeous fella has been working hard on this nest cavity over the past week or so, and we finally heard “tap tap tap” and caught him peeking out from the nest cavity while working hard on it. Enjoy a few clips we took of him peeking out, and also in another tree nearby.
Robins nest outside our stairwell at school, Odenton Elem., Odenton, Maryland
A robin built her nest on top of a light fixture outside a stairwell at our school in 2018. This location gave our students a first-hand view of the babies from eggs to fledglings.

This picture was taken in the spring of 2021. A pair of bluebirds successfully raised these five youngsters.
New Birdhouse Quickly Moved-Into
Around mid-July I put out three gourd birdhouses on our deck. A few weeks later (a few WEEKS!!!), a pair of Carolina Wrens moved into the top gourd. I was so surprised and excited that birds moved in so quickly!!!
Purple Martin nests
Eastern Bluebird Hatchling
In this clutch of 6, the first Eastern Bluebird egg hatched at 6:50 am. This is the second brood for this young breeding pair, who was also born in this same nest box last Spring. What a great way to start Memorial Day weekend!
Black-capped Chickadee eggs at last!
This year, no troubles with House Wrens taking the nest box. Last year, the wrens evicted the chickadees and built their nest atop the completed chickadee nest. The House Wrens did raise two successful broods, though.
Brown-headed Nuthatch Feeding Young
The Brown-headed Nuthatch pair (was a cooperative breeding situation with former juvenile from prior brood, but that one has moved on) has been tending to their hatched young. Managed to get great videos at multiple angles showcasing feeding, fecal sac removal, and young peeking out. Lots of vocalizations by parents and young. They’ve grown so big!
Spring nest 2021
A pair of House finches built this nest on the wreath of my front door. I guess I will be directing guest to the side door of the house. The mail is always close by when the female is sitting on the eggs.
American Robin Nest Update
Carolina Wren Babies
Our “Workshop Nest” built by the Carolina Wren contained two beautiful little eggs, which we were pleased to observe as successfully hatched today (Easter Sunday)!
FIRST ACTIVE NEST OF THE YEAR!!!!!
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!!!
Eastern Bluebird – Female and Eggs!
The first image is of the female in our bluebird nesting pair, seemingly watching us as we observe from afar. The second image, taken on March 22, 2021, captures the actual bluebird nest with five eggs.
We’ve discovered an unusually placed nest, eye level in the old workshop next to the light switch of all places. Power to this building is off, and we don’t often use it anymore, so the wren has taken up shop.

Brown-Headed Nuthatch Nest Cavity Construction
This Brown-headed Nuthatch pair has been observed during the past month plus working on constructing a nest cavity in a Pine log fence post. The two frequently alternate, changing places between who is working on the cavity and who is keeping watch in the nearby Sweet Bay tree, and exchanges of feeding take place between the two (included in this video).
As a note: please pardon the initial shaking of the camera, as I finally got my tripod set up towards the end. While you will hear the calls of these birds, there are the sounds of other birds in the background, including our ducks and chickens.

Killdeer Nest on our Neighbor’s Driveway
What kind of chicks are these?
My dad took me to the Kentucky castle’s farm yesterday, and we found four active nests.
Killdeer mama a single parent
I have been watching this Killdeer bird and her nest for a little over a week now. According to all the articles I have read this species is monogamous and both parent birds take part in the nest protection and incubation process. Sadly this Killdeer seems to be a single parent and often has to leave the nest alone in search of food. Last night she was gone the whole night. I am hoping her eggs did no freeze as we are still having some nights that drop to freezing temps ; until June arrives. I will keep on the lookout for the mother and keep monitoring the nest. I have yest to find a specific answer on how long the Killdeer eggs can be viable without incubation and freezing temps.
How many chicks do you see?
This photo was taken for my American Robin nest attempt. Today is the first day I figured out how to see inside a nest that was so high up in a tree with no branches: buy an extension pole that’s long enough, attach a camera to the end, start the video, lift it above the nest and angle it so that it can record what’s inside, lower it back down to the ground, stop the video, then watch it and see what you see.

Waiting for Mourning Doves
A pair of mourning doves have selected a large pine tree for their nest. The female was working on the nest this morning while the male kept watch. It’s a decent nest for a mourning dove, it has a fairly concave shape. Now we are waiting for eggs!
The Grackles Have Roosted
There are many grackles in our area, but we hadn’t found any of their nests until today. High up in a juniper tree, this nest is very well-built and hidden from sight and contains 4 eggs.

House Finch 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!
This nest was created by a very persistent Carolina Wren mama who built her nest in a golf cart I drive at work.
All five of the eggs hatched and the little birds flew away. The mama Wren has come back to check out her nest.
