Reports: Metal twig nest in Hong Kong urban jungle

HONG KONG (AP) - Even the magpies are trying to blend in in the
metal and concrete jungle that is Hong Kong.
News reports say that a pair of common magpies built a nest on a
tree in Hong Kong's Tuen Mun district using scrap metal twigs
believed to have been collected from a nearby construction site.
The Sunday Morning Post reported the metal nest was discovered
after some of the twigs started falling off the tree and hitting
pedestrians.
The Apple Daily newspaper reported Sunday government officials
taped the nest together on Saturday but left it in the tree.
The newspaper published a photo showing a local resident
carrying a jar filled with the dozens of short metal twigs that had
fallen off the tree.
