I am hoping someone can help me identify this “nest.” That’s what I am calling it because I have no clue. It was hanging in my father in law’s backyard and he took it down and opened it up but did not see anything. A few days later he became very ill with breathing issues and we are wondering if this “nest” had anything to do with it.
Please help. He is in the ICU and we are searching for answers. His doctor said that maybe an antigen caused his illness.
We are sorry to hear about your father-in-law. This looks like the nest of a Bushtit to us, and there are many similar images posted on the Best Animal Galleries site. A Bushtit is a small social, insectivorous bird and one is pictured with its nest on BirdNote.
