Structural engineer in action !!!!!

This is an incredible must see!

Whether you’re a bird person or not, this is stunning.

Not to detract from the sheer magic of it, but in practical terms, how many trips would a bird have to make with that tiny little quantity of mud/clay it could carry and how far from the nest is the source? If you take the construction of a “circular bowl” in your stride as instinctive how the heck does the bird come up with the windbreak/entrance design that shields the eggs/chicks from the elements – and at what point in fashioning the bowl do they start to construct it?
