Thank you for the suggestion, apeachg. I have yet to see a Verdin in the area. We do have Bushtits that Hemma mentioned. Their nests seem quite similar.

Hi Lee, most definitely a bird nest :) I gave you an ID on that awesome spider!

Bird nest u think? Also, I posted pictures of an arachnid that looks pretty good, not sure of the species yet. Wondering what your input is. It may be the one with no thumbnail.
