Day 191: Covert Nesting

Regardless of whether you plan to nest outdoors or indoors, when a nesting site is compromised (or even suspected of being compromised) you need to have a backup plan.

This is called “covert nesting.”

With covert nesting, you take your flock and retreat to a second, super-secret and secure nesting site, which comes complete with round-the-clock security services.

Note to the manly manbird of the nest: Here, it can be a good idea to keep your secondary nesting site a secret even from your chosen ladybird, to reduce any risks of a security breach.

Nesting season has almost arrived, so it is time to select my super-secret secondary nesting site....

MOM. Seriously? We talked about this. First blindfold yourself, THEN approach the secret nesting site.

The nest is reinforced with 100% pure wicker - which means no one without a beak can chew their way in or out.

The camouflage is so good in here I can't even see myself!
