The Cemara or Causurina leaves Fake Nests Have Landed !!!



I was a bit worried when the 200 fake nests made of Causurina leaves did not arrived this morning.

Upon checking my post box there was a note left by the post laju delivery man for me to collect at their Brickfield post office.

I hurried to collect the item and upon opening these were how these fake nests looks likes.

The Causurina leaves were line in a single row and I think they were glued to each other.

The leaves ends were tied with a kind of string.

Hmm very thin but solid.

I have never seen the item before and have been they looks very interesting.

They smell like Causurina leaves drying and I wonder if they can attract those swiftlet.

According to the supplier, an Indonesian based in Java, in Indonesia many swiftlet colonies were actually created using Serinti birds as their foster parents.

They actually removed the Serinti eggs and replaced them with swiftlet eggs. Without knowing that their eggs were actually swiftlet eggs, the Serinti will eventually foster these swiftlet babies.

Once hatched the swiftlet babies will get used to the smell of the Serinti nests, which are usually made of Causurina leaves.

Due to their familiarity with the smell of the nests, these fake nests can be easily accept by swiftlet to start their nests.

That was the philosophy behind the use of these fake nests made of Causurina leaves.

In Peninsular Malaysia this might not be the case.  As such it will be something new to these swiftlet and the only way to know if they accept this new type of fake nests is to try.

I will do some research on this and will be very happy to report to all my blog readers.

If it works, we now will have a new method to lure those swiftlet to stay in our new BHs.

If you wanted to try, for those in Sarawak, please call 017 7551318.

Take a look at some of these pictures just taken today.
