Button, come here fast. I have something stunning to show you.
It’s the nest the male tailor bird put together where his lady-love could lay her eggs and give birth to their young.
Notice the precision with which he’s assembled it. There was also a hook-like bit that he had taken around a branch to make it more secure, I would assume. I actually had to unhook it off the branch.
But how do you know it was the male bird who wove the nest?
I am assuming he did and did a perfect job–it looks almost designer– because he wanted to woo his ladylove! You know, of-course, that birds too choose partners after taking into consideration how big a home he can afford to put up for her and what kind and how much food he can bring to the table to feed her and her babies. The female does not hesitate to leave a male bird if she finds out that she will get a better life with another partner.
Don’t be crazy?
But why have you removed the nest?
Birds build their nests only to lay eggs. It lies discarded once their babies have flown away. The same male bird will find another partner and once he impregnates his new find, will build another nest to woo her, lest she divorces him for another wealthier partner.
