Nature

Animal Homes: The Nest

Season 33 Episode 11 | 52m 55s

Bird nests come in all shapes and sizes, crafted from an inexhaustible diversity of materials. Each one is a remarkable work of art, built with just a beak! We begin with a museum collection of nests and branch out to scenes in the wild all over the world, where birds arrive at diverse nesting grounds to collect, compete for, reject, steal and begin to build with carefully selected materials.
