There aren’t a whole lot of trees in Tokyo, Japan. And so the local crows are hard-pressed to find enough twigs to build their spacious nests. Fortunately, crows are notoriously clever. They are known to craft tools to snatch hard-to-obtain food, for example, and memorize the schedules of trash collectors to scavenge from.

In Tokyo, they’ve found a sturdy twig replacement. Cast-off clothes hangers!

Who knew Tokyo residents discarded so many hangers? Let’s hope they keep it up, for the sake of their local crow families!

Spring has sprung, and that means one important thing to our feathered friends. Time to build a nest!

The weaver bird shows off impressive beak-knitting skills.

Bald eagles need room. And lots of it.

Hummingbirds just want a cozy nook.

White storks like roof access.

Swallows prefer a wall. And some mud.

Eurasian coots like a waterfront view.

And this is what it’s ALL about. These beautiful sparrow’s eggs couldn’t ask for a homier dwelling.
