On Easter Sunday I was cleaning off my front deck when I noticed a bunch of dead leaves, twigs, and other litter hanging out of the zipped-open tool pouch hanging from the seat of my bicycle.

Annoyed, I brought over the garbage can and began pulling the trash out. At the bottom of the trash, I was surprised to find a newly-built nest! Here's a picture of the nest and the tool pouch it was in.

Based on its size, and the materials used (small twigs, hair, moss, insect cocoons, and feathers), I think it was a Chickadee's nest.

Feeling guilty about ruining it, I put up a birdhouse a few feet away.
