Was doing some underhood maint and found...

I have an m56 valve cover, and I took the black plastic cover off, and discovered what I suspect is a chipmunk nest! If you look carefully you can see an indentation in middle of it. We've seen more chipmunks this year than we can remember! Picture attached. Glad I found it, as nests like this can contribute to uneven heat dissipation in the aluminum valve cover.
