Avian Architects: Quick ID guide to nests and eggs of southern African birds


Author: Stuart/Stuart
Format: Paperback
Published: January 2021

Another title in the ‘Quick Guide’ series, this compact little book is a handy identification guide to the surprising variety of nests built by southern African birds. Covering multiple species, it is arranged according to nest type – ground, woven, stick, cup, mud-pellet and
domed, as well as nests in tree holes, on water, on cliffs and in scrapes on the ground. It is packed with photographs and illustrations showing the ingenuity of the designs, the birds that built them, and the eggs that are laid in them. In pithy fashion, the text – matched to the photographs – describes:
  • nesting site and nest structure
  • building materials used to construct outer and inner layers
  • nesting habits of the architects
  • clutch size
A simple key to nest types on the inside front cover directs readers to the relevant section in the book.
