Bird nest with blue trimming

This tidy little bird nest was resting at about knee height on some spiky grass. I guess it must have fallen out of a tree, though it’s possible a bird built it there. I didn’t touch it, so I don’t know how well bound it was to the vegetation.

It’s interesting how the bird wove a piece of blue plastic ribbon into the nest.

I don’t know what type of bird made the nest. It was at Manly Dam, near Sydney, Australia.

  1. What an interesting find. Maybe a bird found some rubbish and decided to take a short cut and use it instead of twigs to finish its nest. 🙂 I also wonder if it fell out of a tree and landed where you found it.
