I saw this nest in the Clackamas River district at 2500 ft elevation. It is on the side of a fir tree, about five feet above ground level. The larger opening is about the size of a fifty-cent piece (remember those?).
I'm assuming it's a bird's nest. Can anyone help identify which species of bird might have built it?
The purpose of this forum is to help people identify things they've seen while out hiking: wildflowers, trees, birds, insects, small animals, animal tracks, even geographical features like buttes or streams

The only bird that comes to mind is the Pacific wren. They will take advantage of almost any kind of structure to use as a foundation for a rather messy looking nest and, of course, they are very common in the forest at that elevation.
