A bird nest can be found whilst cutting most types of trees, including ent trunks. The chance of getting a bird nest from a tree is 1/256 each time you would normally get a log, regardless of the type of tree (except redwood trees, which only drop clue nests). If a nest appears while a player is cutting a tree, a chirping sound will usually be heard, and the player will get a message in the chat box stating, "A bird's nest falls out of the tree." The nest is dropped on the ground and will despawn after 30 seconds if not picked up.

Bird nests may contain tree or fruit tree seeds, jewellery rings, or bird's eggs. Tree seeds can be used in Farming, rings can be enchanted with Magic, and birds' eggs can be offered to the shrine in the Woodcutting Guild to receive 100 Prayer experience and a bird nest which always contains seeds.

When a nest is dropped a roll is done to determine the type of nest the player will receive. The table contains 100 slots: 3/100 bird's egg (one for each colour), 32/100 rings, 65/100 seeds. When wearing a strung rabbit foot, five seed slots are removed, making the chances 3/95 for bird's egg, 32/95 for ring and 60/95 for seeds.[1]

Empty bird nests can be crushed with a pestle and mortar, resulting in a crushed nest. Wesley in Nardah will crush both noted and un-noted bird nests for a fee of 50 coins each.

Crushed nests are used to make Saradomin brews.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
20 September 2018
(update)

The item's value was increased from 20 to 453 so that it would appear above logs when on the ground, with the exception of Wyson's original nests which had the x-rotation value of their inventory icon increased to 453 instead.

22 March 2018
(update)

The item's value was increased from 1 to 20.

27 March 2014
(update | poll)

Can now be received as a drop when chopping the log left by a slain Ent.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • There is a 1/256 chance that the Armadyl crossbow special attack sound will be heard instead of the chirping sound when a nest is dropped from a tree.[2]
  • Bird nests from Wyson are different than normal bird nests and therefore have their own separate slot in a bank.
