Friday follies

This is a bird's nest I found in our back yard a couple of days ago. The interior is wound fibers from palm fronds, and the exterior is cotton from our back-yard Pima cotton plant. I think this may be a bush tit nest. Humming bird nests we've found in the past have been essentially the same construction, except more cotton in the interior and a sling to hang it from a twig.
