I found this nest and robin's egg on separate occasions in my yard.
The egg was unbroken, on the ground, nowhere near a tree.
The nest isn't a robin's, but I don't know who it belonged to.

Thanks so much, Janet!

I actually have three more nests--they are all smaller, and different than this one. I had to remove them from my honeysuckle when I pruned it. #7929073
