Now that the leaves are falling, nests are revealing themselves all over the place. This one is very close to my front door. I actually discovered it the day before the little birds fledged. It was a blue jay nest and I had never seen jay babies before. They looked like miniature blue jays with very short tails.
This robin's nest was in my crab apple tree.
I'm not sure what kind of birds lived in this nest. I'm guessing a Kinglet, as they seem to prefer spruce to nest in. This little tree is my millennium tree (planted in 2000) and it's about 5 feet tall now. I was marvelling at how large it was getting when I noticed this little nest, well hidden in the upper boughs.
