A bird's nest incorporating pieces of plastic bags


I found this nest on the ground near a neighborhood lake about a month ago. Pieces of plastic bags were used, along with the usual branches and other plant fragments, in its construction. It demonstrates, undoubtedly not the 1st time, that the birds that live in areas littered with trash occasionally use suitable man-made objects in their nests.

If you can identify the bird that built this nest from the nest, please leave a comment.

Man made stuff is often great for nests. Found a mouse (probably) nest under a slab in the garden a while back, mostly made from the synthetic fibres nicked from our hanging baskets.
