What made a nest on our balcony?

My husband and I live in an apartment in Seattle, with a third floor balcony. We had a circular clay pot that previously held a rosemary plant on the balcony - the rosemary died before summer of 2013, but we just left it in a corner and never did anything with it. In time, the pot got sort of hidden by other plants. Today we were cleaning the balcony, and realized that something had made a nest in the pot!

All the dirt that had been in the pot when it held a rosemary plant was gone, and the pot was completely full - a few inches up past the brim in fact - with shredded paper and plastic bags. Definitely in a circular nest-like configuration. Rat? Squirrel? There is a tree right off our balcony that something could have climbed up. Any thoughts?
