This episode is all about bird nests. There are tons of fun facts fun facts here, since nests are one of the more impressive aspects of bird behavior and breeding biology.
We’ll go over the functions of nests, the challenges that nesting birds face, nest site selection, the many types of nests, and nest construction.
That’s a lot to cover, but I’ll try to keep this at more of an overview level. This is sort of Bird Nests 101.
