This nest was used by my husband's black squirrel last year. Somebody is gonna use it again this year and we don't know who yet. The original nest was all leaves. We haven't seen our all black squirrel in a long time. We did see a young black squirrel that had a tuft of white hair at the end of its tail and had been hoping that squirrel might be the new momma but.... not so sure. We haven't seen it in weeks. We think the hawk got it.

I hope you see your black squirrel soon, it's amazing how many nests are revealed in the winter. Most of the squirrel nests I see here are in the Eastern Red Cedars, at least I think they are squirrel nests, they are mostly leaves. We have a healthy population of squirrels. We watch one in particular that has a docked tail, probably due to some sort of injury. He (or she) has been around a few years. Still, squirrels haven't endeared themselves to me yet.

It appears to be been taken over by another tenant...A bird?

I know they're aliens and invasive but still, an impressive amount of work went into this Swan's nest. I was surprised that it was built within 20 feet of a busy roadway, which offered me a prime photo-op.

Incidentally, this picture cost me $15. I'd seen the nest on the way to the store so, after shopping, I backtracked rather than take my usual route home. This caused me to go by a small yard sale where, despite already having too much stuff and not enough money, I spent $15 on these two items.

I'm unsure...Its hard to tell exactly what type they are.
They were WAAAAY off in the distance while in travel. If it is...They're the first I've ever seen here.
