Real bird's nest. This is a Swallow nest, a darling migratory bird with a delicate frame and high intelligence. This bird is brown with a cap of black on it's head to wings and back, and brown underbelly.
They swoop and glide for pleasure - sometimes using a bit of feather fluff and passing it forth and back in the air between a dozen of them; playing for the sheer joy of it.
They are a seasonal favorite, the return of the Swallow's is one of the best days of the year.

Swallow's make one nest, carefully and skillfully constructed out of mud daubs and grass. They return to it each year if possible, for many years. They abandon their nests for few reasons. This nest was built on a pedestal which had been erected for the birds decades ago (not that they need it, their nests will stick to bare wall, they are such amazing crafters)

This pedestal came down last winter (no birds were harmed) and has been in my collection for two seasons now - the birds that inhabited it came back last year and quickly built a new nest in a better location. The cycle of life continued uninterrupted as it has for generations.

It is unusual and truly unique, that is was built on a pedestal (a foundation) and that you can see nearly a cross-section, having the back open as it was formerly resting against an outer wall.
It measures 5 inches across at the top, and 8 inches across at the bottom (having been built in a pyramid shape) it is 3 inches tall (the wood piece it is built on is 5 x 9 x 3/4 inches
The weight is 1 pound ten ounces

It is solid but the nature of this item (being literally made of dried mud) renders it fragile, and I am only offering Domestic Shipping of Priority Mail to ensure it has a quick journey and I will pack it with the utmost care.

The nest is completely in its natural state, no attempt has been made to tidy it up, nor have any changes or additions been made.

A very unique one of a kind craft item, will add a realistic touch to your project.
