Quel oiseau rare a construit ce nid ? L'oeuf ne s'accorde pas avec le nid et l'endroit est ridicule !
Qu: What's wrong with this nest?
Ans: 1.It's built by a sparrow but a sparrow would not place it at that angle
2. A sparrow would not build in an open place in a lilac bush
3. The broken egg does not belong to a sparrow - it's a pigeon's egg.
This nest actually fell out of a cypress tree last year (2020). The construction is quite beautiful: perfectly round, the outside is woven of grass stalks and moss (good reason for not removing all the moss from your garden), strengthened by dog's hair and the inside is softly lined with down under-fur from my cat! The whole thing is weightless. The arrangement of the outer twigs means that the nest holds fast on almost any branch.
