Clue nests are nests that can be found while training Woodcutting or emptying bird houses on Fossil Island. Searching them will give players a clue scroll of the indicated difficulty, leaving an empty bird nest (excluding beginner clue nests). Like clue scrolls, players can only have one of each type of clue nest in their possession.

There are five types of clue nests:

Rates[edit | edit source]

Like skilling pets, the rate of obtaining clue nests are dependent on the player's woodcutting level and the type of tree the player is chopping. A ring of wealth (i) will double the rate of clue nests for chopping trees in the Wilderness. [1]

The chance of obtaining a clue nest of any difficulty is 1 in , where is the base chance and is the player's woodcutting level. For example, a player cutting redwood trees at level 99 woodcutting will have a 1 in 364 chance of obtaining a clue nest.

The table below displays the base chances of obtaining a clue nest; all rates are confirmed by Mod Tide.[2][3][confirmation needed] It is unknown exactly how Combat Achievements affect these rates.
