While some biologists are out following golden-cheeked warblers and black-capped vireos to try to find their nests, our Deputy Refuge Manager, David Maple, has one-upped us by finding the biggest nest of the year. And, I do not think that his record will be beat. David found the first pig nest of his career. And to top that off, he found a second one the same day about a quarter mile away. You can see video of a domestic free-ranging pig nest at http://youtu.be/yzjfuE4rwSc. Neither of us even realized that wild pigs made nests until recently. However, when I was a kid we had a pig, Grunt, that made a nest with hay that we put in her pen. The nest in this picture taken by David is 4-5 feet in diameter and made from grass.
