Fallen Bird Nest

Texas Tumbleweed or Bird Nest?
 It's been 57 days without rain here in Houston.  I have a yard full of dry hay instead of green grass.  The mornings have been cloudy for several days but by noon those clouds are moved north by the winds.  Today I came home to find this bird nest in my front yard, apparently blown down by the winds.  I thought, how sad for that little bird who worked so hard to build that nest for her eggs and to just loose it all by the wind.  The nest caught my eye because it is made of dried grass and it reminded me of a Texas tumbleweed.  I took the picture because I like how the nest and the dry grass in my yard blended  together.  From a distance you can't even see the nest, it kind of just blends into the yard.  As a self proclaimed artist, I'm thinking "What can I do with that nest?"  I thought of making a hat with it, not to wear of course, just as a piece of art.  What would you do with it?  Any suggestions?
