the most interesting
i took photos of this nest from several angles. this particular shot was not the most beautiful. but it was the most interesting. i am not sure what the thread-like material is that was used to cement the nest to the support branch. it looks to me as if it could be thistle hairs. which would mean it was most likely a goldfinch nest. a quick google search makes me pretty certain it is. the goldfinches are only weeks away from returning to our feeders. i wish i could convey to them how much i admire them as architects.
