Forget crop circles, can you tell who has been visiting my garden?

Chance has gone a little crazy mowing this Spring - this little nest near the rhubarb survived somehow.  We made a shanty to camouflage them from our cats and other predators.
Hope it works.

Dear Family, Please come visit us in Maine...
