Bird chicks in a nest made of dried grass.
This is in a tree planted next to a multi-level parking deck at my job in Atlanta, GA.
Heard these birds chirping like crazy when I got out of my car. Looked over the edge of the parking garage and was only about 5 feet above this nest. I kept checking the nest for a couple of days and sadly, about 3 days after this photo, all the chicks were killed. They were being eaten by crows! I don't know if the crows killed them, but they finished the job.
