Exploring Birds' Nesting Skills and Aesthetic Choices

5 February 2024

In recent interviews with CBC, Dr. Lauren M. Guillette sheds light on the fascinating world of birds, exploring their innate nesting skills and unique sense of style. Through a short video titled "Who teaches birds how to build nests?" and an engaging radio segment "Can birds have their own sense of style?", Dr. Guillette discusses birds' complex behaviours in building their nests and how individual preferences might reflect a bird's own sense of style. These insights challenge our understanding of animal behaviour, suggesting that birds' choices in nest construction might extend beyond mere survival instincts to include elements of aesthetics and personal expression.
