Birds Learn The Art Of Nest-Building

Researchers from Edinburgh, Glasgow and St Andrews Universities have been studying the nest building techniques of southern masked weaver birds in Botswana. If the birds were all building to a genetic template they would all build their nests in the same way, but the team discovered that the birds varied their technique from one nest to the next with some birds building nests from left to right as well as from right to left. It was also observed that birds became more proficient, dropping blades of grass less often, as they gained experience.
