Built by an unknown bird, the construction involves a shallow, woven bowl around 12 cm in diameter, made of dried grasses, weeds, fibers and human hair. This bowl is sitting on a messy pile of tree bark, leaves, broken branches and dried grasses. Found in a niche in a courtyard wall, Kypriotianika. If you can identify the maker of this nest, please add your comments below.
