Default Nest?

I hate to see this made solely from man-made fibers, but I am happy if something was successful in raising a brood.

Any idea what kind of bird it was? This was attached to mugwort (one of my nemeses).

I don’t know what kind of nest it is. Is it possible it blew down from a tree? Building it on mugwort seems so unstable and low to me. But I’m not a bird r a bird expert. We get trash nests similar to that here in NYC from the house sparrows. Those blue tarps make the long filaments like in your nest.

I thought it was attached, but I can't be sure...and I threw it away. I thought it looked like it was from a around, too.

I guess, I was picturing it attach to more of the sturdy woody stalk, but I am not sure what birds would nest that late--maybe goldfinches? I will do an image search.

From the wick search I fid,I am thinking it doesn't seem like goldfinch is likely.

You could be right, maybe it just got tangled in there.
