Is this a hanging birds nest?


Recommended Posts

Took these pictures in central Illinois.  They were in a wooded area hanging over a creek.   I have never seen a hanging birds nest in person.  The top nest is about 6 inches across.  The bottom nest is about 4 inches across.  Which species of bird could they be from?

Thank you, 

Lonnie

Looks like a vireo nest to me.

I will have to look it up on the internet.  Just to see if it's native to Illinois.  A friend of mine told there is a tree on his property.  That has a vastly large group of these nests.
