We did some research to identify the nest and eggs, not wanting to harass the mother. Our best guess is that it is a Red-Eyed Vireo . Most of the pieces fit including the use of wasp paper in the nest. One item that didn't fit is their preference to nest in forest canopies. I guess if you stretch the definition of forest canopies nesting at five feet in a couple of acres of six foot trees would qualify. If you think I have it wrong with the identification please let us know.
