I'm firing up an old well that's been down for over a year and I noticed the cows had chewed on the propane line. I flipped back the cover and look what I found under neath. I'll let y'all guess at what did it.

I'd have to go along with the others. Pack rat.

He definitely had to work at it to get those rocks up there.

Probably shimmyed up that cloth coated propane line.

Don't think I've seen rats make such a neat circular nest. Looks like some bird to me. Guess the bird talked the rat into installing the brick house before she put in the mattress. confused2

Would have been cool if it would have dug up some arrow heads for you and put them in that nest.

Are you going to tell us, or leave us in the dark indefinitely?

Looks like a pack rat started it with the rocks and heavy stuff. But the round nest looks like a owl or road runner squatted on it. I would think a road runner could kill a pack rat. I have seen road runners circle a rattle snake till they get a head shot and severe the head. Then drag him home for the new born.

Remember that with the cover closed and the rocks pushed in would have left a very small opening.
HWY-Man do you know what made this ?
Could this be man made ???

my guess is a cactus or rock wren, judging by the uplifts in the background appears to be a Juniper break and red clay/loam ground makes me think out in the western region of the state. I see a lot of juniper bark in the nest. Third guess is a curved bill thrasher, but with out the eggs it hard for to be 100%
