In nature, colours play a very important part in the everyday lives of birds and animals. Imagine if a zebra’s stripes were pink, purple and yellow. Snazzy fashion statements but they would be past fashion statements because they’d be so snazzy that every large cat and dog would see them so easily that they’d be on the menu all the time.
It’s likewise for birds. The nests are usually very drab affairs if they’re to remain hidden amongst the undergrowth and shrubbery. Occasionally nests stand out but that’s usually because they’re suspended from twigs so thin no predator could get to the nests. So, it makes sense for Ma Nature to choose neutral colours when birds build their nests. Today’s photo seems to be a mishmash of strands… blurry and out of focus but pause for a few moments and have a good look. Care to tell me what you see?
