The nest has been in the Liquid Amber tree (liquidambar styraciflua) for several weeks now.
Finely woven with grasses. This is one reason I don't like to do a lot of weeding around the property. The birds use so many native grasses for their nests.
Come spend some time with me in my garden...

"I know a bank where the wild thyme blows, where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, with sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.
And there sleeps Titania sometime of the night Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight." _William Shakespeare
