Crow's Nest Make Out of Hangers

Crow's Nest Make Out of Hangers

The clever crows have stolen hangers from the surrounding homes to make a nest.
This was taken at Kyushu University in Fukuoka City.

(Updated 2/6/2101)

The nest builder was the Jungle Crow japonensis - Large-billed Crow. The diameter and flexibility of wire coat hangers make perfect nest building material for Jungle Crows.
During the breeding season there is a possibility of local or large blackouts being caused by hanger nests built atop power polls and pylons. Kyushu Electric power company has "crow patrols" that search out and destroy hanger nests on their power grid. If you happen to notice one of these nests on a power pole call your electric company.
