A Call for Input!

I am looking for input from people on two related subjects:

1.  Do you have a favourite nest, and if so, where is it?

If it’s in Edmonton AB or Halifax NS (and area) – I’d be most appreciative if you’d let me know the nest’s location.

My goal is to hunt down your favourite nests and photograph them, as part of my Residency project.

2. Do you have plastic that could be used to build nests?

If so, please get in touch and let me know what you’ve got. I’m looking for things like flexible plastic tubing, pipe wrap, offcuts from plastic banner production, offcuts from plastics manufacturing, plastic strapping used to hold pallets of goods together … that kind of thing. The material should be in long strips/lengths, suitable for weaving into a bird’s nest shape; it needs to be fairly sturdy, but flexible enough that I can manipulate it with my hands. Bright colours would be fantastic, but not essential. Ideally, you’d be in Edmonton AB so we can connect personally and I can get this material from you.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide!

Leave any input in the comments below, and I will get back to you.

      OH these are so beautiful! Aren’t they wondrous structures? I am repeatedly amazed by the engineering and the ingenuity in nest construction. Your photos are gorgeous.
