Air filter beware

Last week after coming back in town from a long weekend I found a surprise in my intake. A bird had made a nest in my intake. I have an airaid intake and the bird had made a nest all the way around the filter!

That's nuts... can't believe a bird would pick that spot. They can put an nest together in a real short period of time though!!

how did it get under the hood, what kind of bird was this. I would suspect a mouse before a bird. Don't get me wrong it is possible, makes me wonder when was the last time you checked your oil, tranny fluid, and all your other fluids.

it dont take long for a bird or other varmit to call your engine bay home. in a day or two they can set up shop.
ive seen a 10 foot water moccasin wraped up around an engine to stay warm, talk about a shocker when you open the hood!

Maybe the bird was using your filter as a feather dryer. Hey..I seen women using fishing lures as ear rings..it could happen. Yeah man..birds work fast...

A 10' water moccasin?
Maybe he was looking for a bird.
