Who Am I?


A pair of these birds have built a nest in a clematis in a pot on our patio just outside our dining room in Irvine, CA. The nest is quite large,maybe ten inches long, about five feet above the ground, cocoon shaped with an opening on the side near the top. The birds are approximately five inches long from head to toe. Any ideas what type of bird they might be?


Thanks,

K.M.

I believe it is a member of the Flycatcher family - possibly a Willow Flycatcher.
