Pictures of birds' nests in sign letters

The Type Nesting Tumblr blog is a big ole repository of birds' nests built in sign-lettering, asking the musical question, "Do birds have a favorite font?"

  1. ^ FTW lol

    I remember finding a few crispy chicks in a nest built on a porch light. Grandma didn’t realize there was a nest with eggs in there. At least the signage above is UL approved for birds.

  2. It appears they favor letters with counters (the white space inside a closed letter like these):
    A a B b D d e g O o P p Q q

    The C and c will apparently do in a bind.

  3. @5: Particularly fonts where the counters are small relative to the rest of the letter.

    Now, for bonus points, someone design the ideal bird nesting font…

  4. I really don’t like sparrows. They are an invasive species that was introduced from Europe. They’ve actually aided in the decline of some of our native birds…Read up on it.
