Nest Building Materials
A Pattern Story
“Along the Caribbean coast of Central America, the Montezuma Oropendola builds a pendulum-shaped nest that can hang 180cm from the forest canopy branches. In humid tropical forests of the Northern Andes, female hummingbirds build tiny 2cm cup-shaped nests using spider silk, moss and lichen. Indonesia’s swamps and mangroves play host to the Dusky Megapode laying it’s eggs on mounds of earth, leaves, sand and sticks built up to 11m wide and 5m tall.”
Nest Building Materials pays tribute to all the nest builders, feathered or otherwise, creating a cosy place to feel safe and to nurture, to block out the world, even just for a moment.
