A New Research On The Use Of Causurina Leaves Fake Nests !!!

Something new and rarely heard of.

Fake nests made from plant leaves.

The plant I am referring to is the Causurina tree or Pine tree.

The leaves are needle shape and I wonder how their are tied or glued to take the shape of those bird nests.

If your favourite past time is to swim at the beach I think you can see lots of these trees at the beach front especially in Penang, Malaysia.

The product was said to be suitable to lure swiftlet use them much better than those made of plastic or foam.

My current plan is to test about 200 pieces and see how they perform.

Just ordered and expect to receive them this weekend.

Once received will take lots of pictures and post on this blog.  Let see how the leaves are tied or glued to each other.

They will be used both in newly renovated or build BHs or old BH with existing nests.

As you know the use of fake nests is more or less help to quickly get your BH visitors to be your tenant in a very short time.

If you have lots of birds inside your BH and they are not making any attempt to start nesting you might want to install some of these products.

My key research using this Causurina leaves fake nest is to lure those young birds to stay inside the BH where they were hatched and raised.

I might spend most of these Causurina fake nests on this particular purposes.

The idea is to place two pieces of these fake nests just next to all those nests that are having babies in them.

If this technique works we can proudly says that we have discovered another new technique that will help to quickly populate out BH.

Will make some observation and if there are any positive developments will report in this blog.

If you have some similar research or test works please send your report with pictures to

I will be happy to post your report for the rest of BH owners to learn from it.

Let us share our findings and increase or chance of becoming a successful swiftlet farmer.
