Corvid nests in win­ter time

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

When there are no leaves on the trees you may sud­denly no­tice birds’ nests where you did not ex­pect them. Among the most ‘ob­vi­ous’ are those of our corvid species. They are mostly quite rough struc­tures made from sticks and a bit of mud and mainly found in tree­tops. Rooks, on the other hand, nest colo­nially in rook­eries, where there can be lots of bulky twig cups in the up­per­most branches. Mag­pies make quite a loose dome of twigs, which may be in the cen­tre of a bush or tree.
