Small nest only noticed when leaves fell from tree.
Is this the nest of goldfinches which we saw on telephone wire outside window this summer? Will they return to same nest?

    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.

Could Be

Goldfinch looks like a good candidate. It’s on an outer fork in the tree and is lined with down and wool-like material. If it is then they are likely to return to the same tree, the nest probably won’t survive the winter.
