Wow, what an amazing construction. I've no idea what the birds are either - we need aiki, or maybe Ray knows.

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. (Chinese proverb)
Cool photos! They are (I think) Rufous Horneros Furnarius rufus, a member of the ovenbird family (Furnariidae) and native to South America.
psst, want to see my blog? http://mazzaswildside.blogspot.co.uk/
Thanks for that Aiki! That would make sense! Looks like a clay oven and they certainly are rufous! :-)
And a useless factoid or two : Horno is Spanish for oven and Furnarius translates from the Latin as "trade of a baker". I must get out more. LOL
You have to wonder if it is entirely instinct that tells them what to do or is it learned from older birds ? Goodness knows how many trips to a muddy puddle it takes to build one of those.

I never cease to be amazed at how much I didn't know I didn't know.
Was the only way I thought of sending them.
It doesn't say what birds they are but sure Aiki will be right.
