Who Built First?

White-crowned sparrow nest with one egg in Douglas fir
Two nests.
I was watering young trees when I came upon this crowned sparrow nest in a small Doug fir.
And then I spotted the other nest just below it: bald-faced hornet. 😳
Bird nest with egg in fir tree
Wonder who built first?
Sparrow and hornet nest within inches
“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”
—Psalm 91:1
Bald-faced hornet's nest inches below a sparrow nest
