Swainson's Thrush nest, Yamhill Co., Oregon

I discovered this Swainson's Thrush nest by chance today while I was walking through a grove of Douglas Fir trees about three miles west of Willamina, Oregon.  It is situated about two feet off the ground on a small stump of a tree, and appears to be composed mostly of moss and grass.  This find is especially interesting to me because my father recorded his finding of a Swainson's nest a few miles from this site exactly 62 years ago today -- June 20, 1952.
