Found Bird's Nest

Casey and I found this bird's nest on the side of the road - whether a kid was taking this empty nest to school for show'n'tell, and lost it, or the high winds blew it out of a tree, it's impossible to say. I looked around and didn't see any eggs, so I assume (I hope) it was already used, and finished with.

You can see the delicate weaving, and the layer of (presumably) dog fur carefully lining the inside of the nest, to protect and soften the nest for the eggs, and eventually, baby birds.

What a sweet little nest.
