Bird Nest in Bike Basket

This photo was taken at the Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center where I’m a biologist. I rode my bike in on Tuesday through the rain and got to work at about 7am. I went out to make sure my saddle wasn’t getting rained on at about noon and it looked like somebody found an old bird nest and put it in my basket. I figured somebody was playing a joke on me. But then when I came out at 3:30 to go home, the nest was complete. It was actually woven into the weave of my basket! Anyways, I spooked the robin, took some pictures and moved the nest to a tree hoping it would use it.
