The red ovenbird (Furnarius rufus), the national bird of Argentina and Uruguay, collects mud and piles it on top of a tree branch while letting the sun slowly dry it. When completed, its characteristic dome-shaped nest bears a resemblance to an old-fashioned wood-fired oven, hence the bird’s name.

  1. How on Earth do you have a bird that looks like most other birds, but is predisposed to make little mudhuts on tree branches? Like, was there one creative bird one day and theyir brains literally evolved to make their homes this new way? Does the style change by region?

  2. I used to live in Uruguay and always thought these birds were cute, and a little cartoonish with the way the walked and ran on the ground. Their call is also quite loud for a little bird, in my opinion.
