I found this little nest on the grass. Perhaps it blew out of a tree. See the feathers in the center? Some nest are packed with mud and very "formal." This one is a creative, flowing woven masterpiece. No mud. The branch in the lower left continues on out into a curl. It is about 2 3/4 inches by 2 3/4 inches.
