nesting pittas

Rainbow pittas are elusive and somehow just a little bit magical with a blue flash on a green wings, an orange cap upon a little black head. Although they are reasonably common, catching a glimpse of one in the wild is a rare treat.
During the wet season, rainbow pittas nest on the ground and in trees, adapting their architecture to suit the environment.
This design is inspired by the Mid Century Modern designs so popular in the 1950’s and 60’s.
