The present investigation is an attempt to study the remarkable nesting behavior of some residential birds in and around the Ajara city. A bird nest is the spot in which a bird lays and incubates its eggs and raises its young ones. Not all bird species build nests. Some species lay their eggs directly on the ground or rocky ledges, while brood parasites lay theirs in the nests of other birds, letting unwitting ""foster parents"" do all the work of rearing the young. Due to urbanization and over exploitation of trees, birds are in danger about their nesting sites and nesting behavior. Because of this nest location and architecture is strongly influenced by local topography and other abiotic factors.
