Serinti Birdnest In Kundangsan, Sabah
While visiting Kundangsan, Sabah I took a ride to see the small township.
While passing the town, only three rows of shop houses, I was attracted to those looks alike birds flying around the town.
They build their nest on the shop house walls and from far some of them have two colours.
One part the color of the normal pine leaves but the other was something looks like saliva.
In my mind I thought they must be a hybrid. Yes those Serinti must have mate with AF.
So snapped some pictures and download to see the actual truth.
I was wrong. It seem that the upper part of the nest were made of a new type of grass that looks very much like saliva from a distance.
Enjoy with these photos.....
The above two pictures taken is unique. Normally these birds will not build their nest below the other. The chances of those shits from young babies leaving on the higher nest to contaminate the lower nest is high.
If the location is not right the lower nest will be bombed and this will eventually caused the babies to be buried alive.
I wonder how much precautions the bird who build the lower nests have taken.
Based on the unique orientation and shape of the upper two nests I think some precautions were already take into consideration.
They are not that dumb after all.
My main objective to continue writing this blog on swiftlet farming is to expose everything that are relevant to those who wanted to get involve with the business.
I strongly believed that the only way to minimise failure is to get as much knowledge as possible before you invest in it.
