Hanging On By A Thread...


One of our security guards, Bayron noticed a nest hanging from one of the palm tree fronds on the beach right in front of one of the Cabanas. There are 3 babies in it snuggled in tightly. What is remarkable about this is the very slender, tenuous threads that attached the nest to the underside of the frond. How does it stay there? Click photos to enlarge...

What is this a nest of? In Costa Rica, we saw the little bats all lined up inside a palm frond, but never saw this.

Wish I knew! Definitely birds and not bats though. We haven't seen the mother yet and the babies are to young to identify. Anyone know from the unique nest design?

Perfect nest.. wonder how many birds were inside that little house. Have seen a lot of it here in our place..and it's really fun seeing those little birds and hearing them chirping.
