Sarang is a nest. It is a structure or place made or chosen by a bird for laying eggs and sheltering its young. It is a place where birds regularly settle or congregate to rest at night. Most nests are made of pliable material, including grasses and considerable amount of saliva in a woven construction of their nest. It is for insulation to reduce the heat loss during incubation. Some birds have been shown to choose aromatic green plant material for constructing nests that may have insecticidal properties. In most species the female bird is the designer. It does most or all of the nest construction, though the male often helps. Nest function is also to protect them from predators.
