I found this nest in the dogwood tree a few months ago, but there was never a bird in it. I decided to take it down and use it for a painting. I liked how the bird had gotten the day lilly leaves from the front island for the nest on the side of the house. A few weeks later a new nest was in the exact spot and I felt so bad about taking the first one. The bird once again didn't have any babies or sit in the nest. This time I will wait until fall to take it out then again I may just leave it there.
