Summary0003982: Outside Nest Boxes Claimed by Wild Animals

Steps To ReproducePlace nest box outside in biome with giant eagles.

May be intentional, she laid eggs in it.

A buzzard did similar to my nest boxes (and left a few eggs), but the nest boxes are no longer claimed by it, as it's long gone.

Appears a single giant eagle will claim all available nest boxes. I put two more up there and she claimed all three.

That's .. kinda what nest boxes are for, isn't it?

It's certainly why I have one on my balcony.

Well, say that again when a Giant Eagle mother claims it. But i also think this is intentional.

Naros: Any animal on the map magically knows where it is and will claim it. If you build a nest box, every freaking duck, turkey, buzzard, etc. (maybe even alligators?) will raid your fortress to lay eggs in them. It's a tad silly.

It should be noted that during a season change boxes that are claimed by a non-present animal will be freed.

The bug also includes dead or slaughtered animals who have claimed a nest, and these DO NOT clear seasonally.
