Nesting

The swap coordinator challenged everyone to post a picture of their Traveling Little Visitor with our state flower, tree, flag, animal, or whatever. I figured it wouldn't be too hard to find the state tree -- the eastern hemlock. Hmm...

But in the process, at the foot of a big old pine tree, Hawk spied this nest, nestled on the ground among wildflowers:


She insisted on having her picture taken among the natural PA treasures, because we need help identifying the wildflowers and the nest. Please leave a comment if you know the name of this wildflower, or what kind of bird made this nest.

Hawk says, "Hank uin vans." (Translation: Thank you in advance.)

UPDATE: A kind soul told me that this is Canada Mayflower. It's quite pretty, with its shiny leaves and delicate white blossoms. Still no word about the nest, though.
