The pictures of the pieces of nest are from the nest that you see pictured attached to the soffit (sp?) of our house. You wouldn't believe how secure it was to the surface of the soffit and it couldn't be removed in one piece. I kept a couple of pieces, they are fascinating to look at.
Last two pictures are of the nest currently at the back of the yard. I posted a picture last week that wasn't very close. These are better. I'm wondering how it will survive the winter!

I took the above picture last year. Seems every year I have a nest to photograph!
Amazing work by those little pests!
