Neighbor said it was a Kangaroo mouse. Judging by the size of the rear feet, I agree.
The whole nest was about 4 inches in diameter and it was tiny.
I placed it under the wood shed where it will be sheltered for the winter. If I put it back where it was as suggested, the snow removal service could easily kill it since the truck will drive over that patch of dirt to move snow off our driveway.

Hanta virus is rare. I'm more worried about human vaccine ingredients than a small critter I found in some dirt around my potato plants.
Tuberculosis kills way more people worldwide than the Hanta virus.
