A New Idea On Styrofoam Fake Nests Installation !!!

The Salak Tinggi BH conversion operation was halted for a few days.

One of my worker was not well and need some rest.

While waiting for the sick worker to get well I have been toying with some new ideas to install inside this new BH.

My main purpose is to test something new that might become a key feature in all new BHs if this idea works.

As we all know this saliva spitting birds are known to love building their nest either at those 90* corners or on fake nests.

If you own a BH and your BH is starting to show new nests, you can proof that I am right.

There must be some special reasons that they prefer to built their nests at these two places.

Just try to think why they love these two places and if you find the right answers you might use them to your advantage.

My personal believed is that these wild birds are lazy but smart.

In the first place why must they want to build a nest?

To lay eggs?

Nope that is not the right answer.

How about if I say that they built the nest because of sex?

You might think that I am joking but just think about this idea that came to my mind not long ago.

When the female bird come into heat she will start to produce this smell that will make those male birds to get crazy.

This is a natural thing in nature.

If for some silly reason she allows the male partner to hit her and her eggs begins to fertilize, she has 8 days to have a place called nest to lay her two eggs.

If there is no nest, she might need to use other bird's readied nest.

So I believed she will not allow the male partner to fertilize her eggs unless a nest is ready or semi ready.

As such the poor male partner have very little choices but to quickly erect one for his lady.

At this very critical stage the male bird will have to find some way to start building a nest that have to be fast and quick.

The proper selection of location on those nesting planks or wall will become a huge advantage.

90* corners will be the most preferred.  This is due to it shape that full filled the requirement of easy, fast and less tedious.

The next preferred location will be on the fake nests.

Fake nests provide a kind of platform for these male birds to built his nest.

Using minor amount of saliva he can shape a simple nest to be presented to his mate.

Once his partner accept the semi done nest, it will be up to the female partner to accept or reject the nest.

If she feels that the semi erected nest is okay or acceptable, they will than start their courtship or love play.

This is why the male have to be smart and use his surrounding to his advantage.

The fake nests and those 90* corner will be forever the most favourable location as compared to straight planks or walls.

Not if you agree with the above explanation, how can we get as many fake nests as we can inside our BH especially inside the VIP rooms?

Try to use this crazy but interesting idea.

Buy a few pieces of those 2'X4'X 3/4" styrofoam and cut them into small strips of 8"X1"X3/4".

Once you have that nicely done bring to your BH and examine where you can install inside your VIP rooms.

My two sketches below will provide you with the type of installation which I planned to do at Salak Tinggi.

If you are not very sure please drop by the BH and I will show you how it is done.

Come and view this idea.
