Horse Hair Nest

While visiting my friend Miss Crisp, I stumbled upon this treasure. A hummingbird nest made (almost) completely out of horse hair just laying in the middle of the driveway on the way to the barn.Being the good homeschooling parent that I am, I just had to bring it home for further inspection. It is a beauty!

We've found several nests like this around our property. In my quest to identify what bird makes it, I stumbled upon your blog. Unfortunately, it's not a hummingbird nest... Theirs are only the size of a quarter made from spider webs. I'm still trying to figure out what makes these, but my guess is some type of finch.
