Bird's Nest Introduction:
Bird's nest, as the name suggests, is the swallow's nest. It is not an ordinary swallow's nest, but a special kind of swallow, a swiftlet's nest.Swiftlet lays eggs in March and April every year. Before laying eggs, they fly on the sea surface and high altitude every day, sometimes as high as several thousand meters, pierce through clouds and fog, suck dew, and feed on insects. After digestion, they burrow into steep, shady, high-altitude cliff cracks and deep caves, and spit to build nests.Before laying eggs, swallows decide where to build their nests, which are usually natural caves. When swallows decide where to build their nests, they use their saliva to make a primer on the inside of the cave for 45 days. Subsequently, female and male swallows mate and lay eggs in the nest.After laying eggs, the swallows hatch the eggs in the nest until the baby swallows are born. During this period, the little swallow will live in the bird's nest all the time, and its parents will also take care of its diet. When the little swallow grows down and learns to fly, it will leave the bird's nest and live independently.Before collection, the staff will use tools to check whether there are eggs and small swallows in the bird's nest, so as to avoid accidental injury to small lives. After confirming that there is no abnormality, the staff will remove the bird's nest attached to the wall of the cave.The staff collects the collected bird's nest, and makes bird's nest products after cleaning, hair removal, drying and other processes.In the history of China, there is a recorded history of eating bird's nest, which can be traced back to the Ming Dynasty navigator Zheng He. Since the Ming Dynasty, bird's nest has become the imperial meal. According to the biography, Chiang Kai-shek's wife, Soong Meiling, died at the age of 106. She eats a small bowl of rock sugar bird's nest every day, which may be the secret to her longevity. Bird's nest, as a nourishing product, can stand the test of reason.
