As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Gallery: A tree house modeled after a bird's nest

Jerry Tate Architects designed this woven tree house to look like a bird's nest. The London-based firm aims to "design buildings that bring architecture and nature together." And that's just what this cute getaway spot is all about.

Students worked alongside the architects to complete this project as part of the annual Dartmoor Arts Project. Instead of having to climb a steep ladder, there's a sloping walkway that leads to a pod with circular seating. Jerry Tate explains: "The form was inspired by a weaver bird's nest, which looks dramatic but is safe and secure."
