The nest building team strikes again! This time we were at the Edinburgh Science International Science Festival to engage with the community through our pop-up science event: Why do Birds Build Nests? Here, both children and adults were provided the opportunity to view and handle birds' nests from our collection and to have their own go at building a nest themselves - harder than it sounds! Many decided to take their architectural accomplishment home with them, however, others helped to decorate our tree (see below), which, if I do say so myself, gives social weaver birds a run for their money!
