I have been documenting many bird nests this spring, so show us your nest (any kind, doesn't need to be avian) photos.

These are from last spring (Australia currently heading into winter) when I had some Thornbills nesting in my back yard (in the tree behind my back steps)

The nest is well obscured in the trees foliage:

But it was the activity which gave their presence away with a steady steam of materials into the clump during building (view from my back "landing)

they seemed to have a bunch of "blind" entrances on the upper outer side of the nest which I discovered did an admirable job of detering predators (in Australia mostly other birds, who thought the nest was empty and went away empty "handed")
