Anyone know what type of bird made these nests?!






Last week, we had a very windy night.  The next day, a few bird’s nest were laying in our front yard.  One in the backyard.

This made me sad… all that work, now on the ground.  But I was also highly interested in the amazing construction!  How do they know how to weave these intricate nests?!

Amazing.

Mother Nature is amazing.

Does anyone know what type of bird made these nests?

NEST PHOTOS

This one was my favorite.  It was made of horsehair and feathers.  So soft and cozy… very downy and warm.  I also find it fascinating that this bird who made the nest, only chose WHITE feathers and horse hair.  Why?!

THE OTHERS LOOK SIMILAR TO EACH OTHER – BUT DIFFERENT SIZES…

These two look like the same type of bird made them… however, one is quite a bit larger than the other.  They seem to have a mud base/floor.

I love how the larger one has a stick perch.  I can just imagine Mom or Dad standing on that to feed the babies.
