Tallbird Nest is a naturally occurring object that randomly spawns in Rockyland Biomes. Tallbirds will also spawn with nests (one Tallbird per nest) and will lay Tallbird Eggs there.
The Egg can be taken from the nest, which will anger the owning Tallbird and make it chase the player. The Tallbird will lay another one after 17.5 game hours, and if killed, the Tallbird will respawn in 2.5 days. The Egg can hatch into an adult Tallbird if it is unharvested and the parent Tallbird is dead.
At dusk, Tallbirds return to their nests to sleep, though they will wake up if anyone goes near them for a short duration or takes their Eggs.

DLC, Tallbird Nests can be found rarely in the Shipwrecked Magma Field Biome.
Tips [ ]
Players should be careful when using fire around Tallbird nests as they are flammable and do not respawn if destroyed.
One must be prepared to kill or run away from the Tallbird after taking its egg, as it will pursue for a very long time.
If the player jumps into a Wormhole, the Tallbird cannot follow, making it easy to steal their Egg this way.
Trivia [ ]
According to Maxwell, Tallbird Nests are made out of Beefalo Wool: "It's made of dirty beefalo hair."
