Cedar Waxwing (Bombycilla cedrorum) Nest
This nest is located in a bush outside my bedroom window. I watched the birds build it last spring, then waited for the babies to hatch, and watched them as they grew up and left the nest. I didn't take any photos because I didn't have any good angles from my window and didn't want to upset the birds by getting shots up close/outside. But, I finally got a peek at the nest this morning, and it did not disappoint! The nest was about 6 feet above the ground and was made of woven twigs and grasses, and then lined with soft, fuzzy stuff (maybe from cottonwood trees). The base was bowl-shaped, but it was very wide and open.
