This talk page is for discussing the Bird's nest page.

Untitled[edit source]

The 'seed' you get from the nest is determined when you click on the nest to retrieve the seed. This is indicated by the fact that they stack in a single pile in the bank.

Birds nests are untradeable unless their contents are removed and then the nest is crushed.

Bird eggs were usless for a long time. After the summoning skill release they gained the following purpose.There are 3 eggs (blue ,red ,green), Blue = saradomin , Red = zamorak , Green = Guthix, You can hatch the eggs at level 70 summoning. The 3 pets you recieve depending on the color of egg. Saradomin owl, Guthix raptor, Zamorak Hawk.

Bird eggs don't compost. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 20:40, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
Well, I'll check it again, but i'm pretty sure they used to be --Eucarya 20:54, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
I'm not 100% certain but more than once i've seen people post on the forums that they specifically tried it and it didn't work. Long, in-depth ones, too, they seemed quite reliable ish. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 15:50, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
Well, i checked it, it's not supercompostable, but I'm sure this has changed!! Birds egg i will swear were supercompostable before. --Eucarya 23:02, 14 October 2006 (UTC)
I sent in a query and I got what was probably the most helpful customer support reply ever. They aren't, they weren't...but they may be in future. We'll have to wait and see, apparently. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 07:53, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Which Trees?[edit source]

Which trees do NOT drop nests while woodcutting? Planeshifted 19:29, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

  • As long as you're a member, I'm pretty sure Bird's Nests have a possiblity of dropping from every tree. It's possible they don't drop meowMagic
  • Just recieved my first Bird's Nest after cutting several hundred logs from Elder Trees. 10:13, April 1, 2015. - Jagerrbombs  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 00:14, April 2, 2015 (UTC).

Image[edit source]

Are there separate images for the different nests (i.e. one with a ring and one with nothing)? ShinyUnown T | C | E 13:39, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

information needs updating[edit source]

There are more locations that a player can get a nest from than just wc, Miscellania, and the gardener. You can also get them from the gnome restaurant minigame. Zig 12:54, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

are these more common now[edit source]

are birds nests more common after wc re-balance? user:csours 13:14, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

pretty weird[edit source]

i've been cutting yews since lvl 70, and its 75 now.. i've had about 10 nests, but about 15 messages saying 'a bird's nest falls out of the tree'; sometimes i don't get a nest when i get that message:/ 21:38, October 30, 2009 (UTC)

Are you sure? Maybe you didn't see them lying on the ground. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 21:43, October 30, 2009 (UTC)
The nests tend to dissapear very quickly. So there's a big chance you missed them. Adult chameleon (automatic).png Anurin Talk · Sign! . 21:55, October 30, 2009 (UTC)

Best Tree for Birds nest[edit source]

Hey I recently reached 52 summoning, so now i can summon a raven.

And btw wyson teh gardener givs birds nest never with eggs, so i didnt try him

any1 can tel me wat tree givs birds nest the most common? I really want a raven egg, and btw my wc is only 65, but feel free to include magic and ivys for other people to know

Ivy. You won't get logs, only exp. Wear a rabbit's foot to increase chances. Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 10:30, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Bird nests drop rate[edit source]

I need to know a drop rate for bird eggs due to I need to get a god bird egg so can anyone help Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 21:00, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

What is the best tree for getting bird nests? 07:14, December 19, 2009 (UTC)

What is a better tree Mahogany or Maple or Ivy (For bird nests) Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 05:50, December 20, 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure which is better (i think all are the same) but if you want nests, have your kingdom set all on maple trees and you will get 8 nests a day. scoot4.pngscooties 05:54, December 20, 2009 (UTC)
Im only getting one nest a day Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 05:57, December 20, 2009 (UTC)
I have gotten 13 nests in 3 hours before cutting Ivy and my woodcutting was only 92.

Basis of drop rate[edit source]

Is the basis of the drop rate depending on time spent cutting, logs cut (or experience gained), or the type of plant cut? --Canifis 01:12, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

What tree to cut..[edit source]

The best tree to cut would be ivy considering it gives no logs so you can keep cutting without banking and is usually the fastest to cut... Just wear a rabbits foot when you cut (24 hunter needed)

Reward list[edit source]

I removed the reward list as the data seemed extremely inaccurate, with sample sizes far too small to give any significant results, given the rarity of some of these seeds (plus was based on a single sample). Perhaps adding a thing similar to charm drop rates for monsters could work? 11:45, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

ivys wtf?[edit source]

Wow, i'm really surpirsed. I've cutten ivys for about 100k exp now but i have not got a single bird nest...

I know it's probably about luck but srsly? Is this normal?

It's a bit of a dry streak, but nothing really unusual.Red dragon face.png YodimonTalk to meh! Coins 10000.png 23:49, May 25, 2010 (UTC)Fixed my signature...

Ivy's don't give that many birds nests, willows give the most. Always wear a Strung Rabbit Foot to maximise bird nest, which needs 24 Hunter [BOLD]Jackwootton~TRR[/BOLD] 23:34, September 6, 2010 (UTC)----

Frequency?[edit source]

About how often do birds nests appear? Like, as in once every xxx cuts. I'd like to know, because I plan to camp at ivy from 68-99 (call meh crazy) and I want to know if they'll fill up my pack by that time. I'll probably drop all the worthless seeds, so that'll save some space...Yodimon 15:28, May 21, 2010 (UTC)

Just remembered, seeds stack too... 22:46, May 23, 2010 (UTC)

They appear pretty darn often. I filled up my invy about 3 times (only with valuable stuff) from 81-90. So...I would say 7-12 times total. HaloTalk 22:47, May 23, 2010 (UTC)
Craaaaaaaaaap... I suppose I'll have to drop them, then... or, I could just keep magic seeds, if I get them...Yodimon 23:09, May 23, 2010 (UTC)
Magic seeds are pretty rare. I got only one from 81-90. And it doesn't really take that long to bank. HaloTalk 23:12, May 23, 2010 (UTC)
Still, it's an annoying distraction... maybe I'll only take the ones over 50k... and besides, I'd like to be generous.Yodimon 02:04, May 24, 2010 (UTC)
You could bring a pestle and mortar (crush and drop) and then other people would be able to take them. If only they were stackable...HaloTalk 02:06, May 24, 2010 (UTC)
A crushed nest is usually worth around 5k~7k so most people like them even if they don't have a high value seed.
IMPORTANT: To increase birds nest drop chance i suggest buying a Strung Rabbit foot because they seem to help me get alot of nests. The best tree to get them from in my opinion is Oak because there are hardly any botters around them and is quick and easy to cut.
For better loot from the Nests would depend on a ring of wealth and maybe looting them altogether. When i looted my 5 Seed nests i got the following seeds in order:
Banana tree seed (Around 3gp)
Curry tree seed (Around 20gp)
Willow tree seed (Around 300gp)
Yew tree seed (Around 70-80k)
Magic seed (About 300k)
I was very happy :-).
Hope the advice helps

Per log or just random?[edit source]

Do Bird's Nests just drop randomly eg just when cutting a tree, or randomly when you get a log or cut some ivy from the tree, for example, will I get more Bird's Nests training on Willow Trees due to having to get more logs, and less on Ivy due to the high xp you get. ArsenalMark 10:27, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

From the Kingdom minigame it is not random. Every 100 maple logs, you always get exactly 1 bird next.

Stack?[edit source]

Do the same type of Bird's Nest stack? Composite 4

In the bank, yes. But not in the inventory. - [Pharos] 16:26, July 15, 2010 (UTC)

Even if they contain different seeds? Composite 4

Yes. Coelacanth0794 19:25, July 15, 2010 (UTC)

Sound effect[edit source]

Wondering if anyone has the drop sound effect (or just the magpie, since they are the same) and if so if you could please add it. A small addition but even the minor details need accounting when possible. Thank you! 16:22, January 9, 2011 (UTC)misterio us

There is now an update where when you get a birds nest fall you will get a message in your text box in red.


Eggs= Common?[edit source]

Eggs are rather common drops for me, when it comes to bird nests. I've gotten about 70 birds nests (theyre all in my bank, havent crushed them yet), since I started cutting yews, around level 70. 21 of these nests contained eggs, and it rather sucks sense I don't have the level to use them anyway :/ . Dunno why I've gotten so many :/

Berserker ring.[edit source]

I got a berserker ring today from a bird nest from miscelenia (unfortanetly no video proof for youtube).

I added it to the tabel, but not 20mins later a person removed it. I am not stupid. I openend a bird nest from miscelenia, and a berserker ring came out of it.

so please add it. What a trust in annonymous persons around here.

Sorry, but there is no way I can believe that without official confirmation. I've opened many nests from miscellania and have not received one nor have I heard of it before. So no, I do not trust you. --Touhou FTW Zaros symbol.png 15:17, November 17, 2011 (UTC)
       I also got a Berserker ring from a bird nest in 2013, but I don't have any proof either. 15:14, August 9, 2014 (UTC)

Onyx Ring[edit source]

The Onyx ring on the drop table seems highly doubtful. In 7 odd years of playing RuneScape I have never heard of anyone recieving this from a bird nest. Also, considering the Dragonstone ring is also not included this seems like fakery.

It was vandalism, thanks for pointing it out. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 00:32, March 5, 2012 (UTC)

There seems to be a glitch where birds nest wont show up in you inventory. They seem to appear invisible.

I just opened, 213 nests from miscellania, none of which produced a single magic or yew seed, yet I got 4 spirit seeds. Can anyone confirm that these 2 seeds are still availible?

Ring of Wealth and nests[edit source]

Does the ring of wealth effect seed nest loot? I got great seeds this time and I was wearing a ROW.Gormagon (talk) 23:42, February 3, 2013 (UTC)

I doubt it, the RoW has an effect if it says "it shines more brightly" in your chatbox, and I've never had that happen while checking nests. 08:30, March 10, 2013 (UTC)

Drop log?[edit source]

Could we add a drop log for the Seed nests and perhaps ring nests (like we have for Jadinko loot as well as charms)? So we can get a proper estimate of the seeds gotten. I've collected data myself, from kingdom collects, which should be a proper start. Some data back from 2008, and then monthly data since the summer of 2012. Altho, the percentages I've gotten in 2008 seem to differ from the average in 2012, so not sure if that data would be correct/relevant; does anyone know/suspect the rates were ever changed? In any case, I lack the wiki-know-how to make such a drop counter thingy; someone drop me a note if it's been made so I can add my data :P . 08:30, March 10, 2013 (UTC)

New type of nest[edit source]

Looks like there'll be a third type of nest: , the Modified farmer's hat will give bird's nests, but those nests won't contain tree seeds... IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 16:52, June 11, 2015 (UTC)
