I am curious as to the location an height of this nest above ground. I am trying to get a better idea of the nesting haunts of our forest birds.

Thanks

This nest is in a strip of riparian habitat about 80 yards from the edge of the Willamette River. The edge of an open field is about the 50 yards in the other direction. The nest is about 12 to 14 ft. above the ground in the outer branches of a large English walnut tree. The predominate tree in the area is Black Cottonwood, and there is a lot of brushy undergrowth. There are also scattered oaks and firs and a 1/4 mile row of (I think) Incense Cedars that someone planted at least 50 years ago.
