Dark-eyed Junco nest in building

Among Oregon birders right now there is some conversation about Dark-eyed Junco nests in atypical locations. My dad took this photo in the late 1950's of a Junco using what appears to be an abandoned Robin nest. Juncos usually nest on the ground in vegetation; Robins usually build their nests in shrubs and trees from 5 to 25 ft. above ground.

Hi Floyd!
Greetings from who-know-where-is-it Zagreb, Croatia!
Just thought you might like to see hawk's nest built at my balcony at 20th floor three years ago. Two squadrons of hawks have been born there on my balcony this so called 'wild birds' chosed for their home.
Obviously, there is no Empty Nest Sindrome here!

(Unfortunately, only in Croatian language so far).
