Bird nest, nestled safely in a tree

I spotted this beautiful bird nest during a walk on a warm February day here in Baltimore, MD. I just took a moment to really look at the nest, and I was in awe. It's amazing that a little bird constructed this. It was so artfully crafted, so delicate, but so secure nestled in the tree. The sun was setting, casting a soft glow on the beautiful little home.
