Hi Everyone,

It looks like a silvereye nest to me but they are generally smaller 5-6cm across.

kind regards,

Dear all

I have a little (now) abandoned nest in the maple tree out the front and I am trying to figure out, based on the birds I’ve seen in the garden last spring/summer, who it may have belonged to.

I am pulling up short though, can anyone steer me in the direction of a good resource for empty nest identification? (Noting the Facebook Australian bird ID group doesn’t allow nest posts).
