Human-Sized Bird’s Nest

Human-Sized Bird’s Nest of the Day
Part furniture, part playground, the inspiration incubator comfortably seats 16

Quote by~Bill Moyers
"When I learn something new and it happens everyday,
i feel a little more at home un the universe, a little
more comfortable in the nest."


About kiwi bird
The name "kiwi" is a Maori word and comes from the sound the kiwi makes. Kiwis are flightless birds, with tiny, rudimentary wings that are so small they are completely hidden
Kiwi birds are omnivore's and eat a diet of insects, worms, larva and crayfish. They will also eat a variety of berries, nuts and roots.
The Kiwi bird is a national symbol of New Zealand.

Help bird build a nest
Jumpstart the nesting: Leave out short lengths of twine, or cotton batting, tucked in a clean suet cage or wedged right into tree bark. Lengths longer than 4 inches could tangle up a bird, so make that the maximum.
Forget the rainbow: Folks used to think it was smart to leave white or red bits of yarn, so you could spot the nests as trees leaf out. Unfortunately, that makes it easier for predators to pick out the wee broods too. Beige (and assorted khaki hues) is beautiful in the bird department. Except for tree swallows who insist on it, white is not a bird-friendly color. (Swallows line their nests in white feathers, so if you know of a friendly chicken farm, have at it. You'll make your tree swallows swoon.)
Ditch the perch: Seriously, break off that no-good dowel. No songbird will be dawdling on the front porch, and it's an open invitation for house sparrows to barge in and take over the digs — dumping the eggs if they have to.
