the nest is fascinating .
it feels just like a human female breast- not sure if that is the origen of the name .
it is made of spiders silk threads hence the soft feel .
it has a very prominent false entrance into which snakes go but fail to find a chick .
the real entrance is a trap door affair which the bird lifts to enter and then it folds back perfectly camoflaged .
