Maintaining AngryBirdsNest.com is definitely a team effort and without the support of the amazing Angry Birds community (read: you) none of this would be possible, so from all of us, “Thank you”. Also, a BIG thanks to Rovio for giving us permission to do what we do.
I created AngryBirdsNest.com in the summer of 2010 as a way to give back to the Angry Birds community while helping myself conquer this amazingly addictive game. My then 3-year-old son and I played A LOT of Angry Birds and back then there really wasn’t an easy way to get help or share strategies. Having a background in web development and video games, I thought I’d approach Rovio and ask them if I could create a fan site. To my surprise, they agreed and even provided some of the very assets (artwork, etc.) you see today. I guess the rest is history. While I don’t respond to as many comments as I used to, I am still actively involved on the site on a daily basis.

Watch out Mad Max, SweetP is our resident road warrior! Born in Hawaii, she is the only person to have ever ridden a motorcycle non-stop all the way across the Pacific Ocean to California. When she finally hit land she was so exhausted that she just couldn’t go on, so this is where she has been ever since. Wait?! I think I forgot the part about the sharks. Oh well, moving on … When SweetP is not tearing up the road, or out on the links, she’s probably helping a fellow flinger on the Nest or attending to the daily Angry Birds Challenge. Like Mad Max before her, that’s just how she rolls! And we thank her for it.
Silence falls over the stadium and the arena rumbles as Mighty Red enters. The respect has been earned and the crowd knows it. Few, if any, Nesters have played as many Angry Birds games as the MIGHTY — Mighty Red. He’s completed every objective, 3-starred every level, and mastered every rank. The diamond tiers can barely hold him. He’s a God among us. Yeah, as I said, the respect has been earned.
You’re the man now dog! Hailing from the south of Netherlands, @bernersenn, is an adventurous spirit who is always looking for a challenge (Angry Birds or otherwise). As his name and avatar imply, he loves Bernese Mountain Dogs — which in Swiss-German translates to … wait for it … Bernersenn. In addition to being an avid flinger and Nester @bernersenn is also one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. We are all lucky to have him as part of the team!
… and a special thanks to everyone else who contributes to the Nest on a regular basis! This is what a community is all about. Go TEAM!
Huge THANKS to our Past Admins
The man, the myth, the legend. In addition to being one of our main contributors, Slim is also the chief moderator. He single handily responds to hundreds of comments each week, helping thousands of Angry Birds players along the way. It doesn’t stop there though. He has superpowers! Shhhhh… One such power gives him super news-sleuthing ability. Another allows him to store vast amounts of Angry Birds data in his cerebral cortex. Yet another allows him to understand something called “number theory”. Yeah, who knew. I just don’t want to get on his bad side.
Sal comes to us from the world of game modding. Yes, he’s l33t, so be careful. Exactly how his background in modding translates into an amazing ability to fling our cute feather friends we may never know, but we’re not ones to complain. In addition to being a top flinger Sal is also a gifted graphic designer. If you haven’t already, definitely check out the awesome Angry Birds backgrounds he has been nice enough to share with the ABN community (yes, showering us with gifts can help you become a moderator). These are just two of Sal9’s nine talents. The other seven are: shaving, chewing gum, breaking bottles over his head, smiling, putting lots of straws together to make one really big straw, tic-tac-toe, and last, but not least, jogging backwards.
If you need an honest answer that comes with a free smile E-Star (E*) is your gal. Permanently happy, and a gadget geek at heart, E-Star has taught herself how to play Angry Birds on two iPads simultaneously, all while teaching young children that pigs really are green. Seriously, who knew?! When she is not mentoring our future world leaders on the benefits of having an asterisk in their pseudonym, she can be found annihilating pigs in Angry Birds Seasons (of course capturing every second on HD video). While breaks are rare for E*, she does occasionally jump up, put her game face on, then run around her iPad while doing the ‘Vogeltjesdans’.
Despite the Hawaiian name, @Kelani hails from the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. In addition to being a Master Flinger, Kelani is a jack of all trades who knows so much random trivia that people in The Bloated Pig simply call him, “Keloogle”. He’s also a musician / composer that plays the keyboard, guitar, trumpet, and vibraphone (Google it!). As a young child he thought to himself, “Why stop there?”, so he’s also a competitive chess player and has been an extra in a number of Hollywood blockbusters, including: Dawson’s Creek, Carrie II: The Rage and The Patriot. When Kelani isn’t laser focused on Angry Birds, hacking Linux, or building something with a rudimentary lathe, you’ll probably see him munching on Mentos. He’s so addicted that @e-star likes sending him surprise packages of varieties that are only available in the Netherlands. There’s something else I’ll have to Google!
You all know the name, but what you may not know is that FujiToast doesn’t like toast. Not one bit. All joking aside, FujiToast has been our go-to walkthrough creator for almost a year now. He’s probably helped more people pass Angry Birds levels than anyone else. Inadvertently, he’s probably saved countless lives and marriages by reducing stress and the time people sit in front of their iPhone (sorry Android users). Not only does FujiToast create awesome walkthroughs, but he also writes articles, creates taffy on the weekends, and routinely saves baby seals from poachers.
Hey @amslimfordy, where do you like working better?
Angry Birds Nest
Angry Birds Wiki
Nest. It has legitimate facts.
Yeah, me too. Also the hospitality here is nicer than Wiki.
Does @AMslimfordy job on Angry Birds Wiki? I did not know that!
I also like Angry Birds Nest best! It has a very great commuinity and good walktroughts!
wow…what did that mean?
Was not a nice environment to work in.
I’ve seen the wiki…people don’t get along over there.
I agree, it’s not well put together
AB Wiki is filled with lies.
it doesn’t seem bad….it looks like they get along….
im on wikia and i dont stuff on there
Just take a look at the “Chrome” page there. Can’t tell you how often that gets vandalized to include …. well whatever that person wants to include. Most recently, it’s been a fascination with Mooncake Festival. Just nonsense.
I’m surprised I discovered this thread lol. The AB Wiki in 2022 is a lot better than it was a decade ago with more information on the “lost” web games, information on newer games/media and more! We also have a better grasp on vandals now than we did previously.
(I doubt anyone would read this again, but oh well lol)
That is true
Hello There, I have a confusion regarding the serial key of angry birds star wars PC, which I recently purchased.In Rovio FAQ, they said one key is valid for ” three installs” so my questions are:
1.Does updating three times via the in-game updater will count as ” three installs”? If yes, do I need to purchase another key after three updates?
2.If I download the recent demo installer instead and over-install it over the old one before uninstalling it, will it still be counted?
Any suggestion would be helpful.Thank You
Playing on Dell XPS-windows 7
I think I can answer both of these questions simultaneously.
Updating your app does not count as an “Install”. When you update your app, all data files should remain intact (I say “should” because, while very rare, things can go wrong, as with any update). Whether you use the in-game auto-updater or download the new .exe file by clicking “Download Free Demo”, this remains the same.
THANK YOU SIR.
intersting info about u guys thx 4 telling us all about u i now know this website more. Thx guys.
Thank you guys for all your time and efforts, it is all very much appreciated :) When I first came here in September ’12 My ranking at GameCenter for ABO was something like 480.After posting all my scores here it was easy to see where I could improve the most (at least a third of my scores were below average). I am now in top 100 at GameCenter, and top 50 here. No way I could have done it without the help of Angry Bird’s Nest and so many people who graciously share their strategy and tips. Again, thank you for this website!
Omigosh! Can’t believe it took me 6 months to find this page! Yahooo!! Go BL, Fuji, and Slim! Sal? I can do six of those, except breaking bottles over my head… :p And what’s a backward jog?
I have a problem regarding the ads on this site. I use KIS 2012 and have anti-banner enabled. Thus most of the ads in this site does not load. But on any page, below the “My Rank, Categories, Comments” option, ads always show up either above or below the “Support ABN! Advertise Here →” link. Is there any way of disabling it? Thanks in advance.
How to get that pictures?
I haven’t got any pictures on my icon
@milutin, go to here https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/forum/discussion/9/how-do-i-create-an-avatar
See the third set therein, about avatars / profile pictures.
@amslimfordy This isn’t the appropriate place but I found a red pointy thing to the left of my rank.Is that supposed to mean one of my highscores is being flagged(don’t flag me for destroying every single piece in Utopia 4-26)or sth else?
Just a decal to bring attention to the box. Nothing more.
@AMslimfordy, I know this is not the place for this but I could not find any other place to write. The Mighty Dragon walkthroughs are something that I hope for. I have not been able to achieve 100% destruction with the dragon on any level of YOTD. The dragon just does not do enough damage! And I have not seen any koi fish walkthroughs at ABN also. Will you please tell me how and where to find them? I hope I am not intruding on this community’s rules and regulations.
Not at all.
You’ll find them here: https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/tag/mighty-dragon/
Thank you very much @sal9. Appreciate the help and quick reply. At last, YOTD will be complete for me.
I have a question regarding the average scores written for each level. How are these determined? Does Rovio provide them? While I see that all of the 3-star scores end in zero and are round figures(often), however most of the average scores end in odd figures; why is that?
Average score = AVG(list of all scores entered on the ABN Leaderboard for that level)
@AMslimfordy, I recently formatted my ipad and so all my AB games are lost(backup were made though). I had purchased the SE Huge bundle once(the 980 one, when it was available) and after fomatting it is gone. Can I recover my purchase?
How did you backup the data?
Used the method here at ABN and have also copied the purchases.lua file but I forgot to make an iTunes backup. Will it affect anything since I have not started the restore procedure yet out of fear of losing the eagles
iTunes backups are strictly precautionary (we highly advice it in case something goes wrong, but it’s not required). When you copy back to whatever device you will be using going forward, your Eagles should be held in that purchases file.
You need to add @E-Star‘s bio.
@sparty nah let them get to know me first, they can do a better job at describing the ermmm somewhat odd little birdie I am :) And can I also add that “need” is not such a nice way to get people to do what you want… Sorry, but my hubby taught me I don’t need to anything but enjoy myself, the rest comes naturally :D
@sparty83 …. having been here for a bit, I can tell you, @E-star is one of the five most awesome and friendliest people on this site. Well everybody’s pretty much really friendly, but she’s right up there. And E-star….nice to see your icon in COLOR now…so I can see the hair ribbon. LOL :) Both of y’all….Fling Long, and Prosper.
@spdlives aww that so sweet of you to say! And hope to be right up there for a long time to come! And LOL IKR the grey period made it a bit harder to make out if me was a he or a she. Much better in color :D
See ya around and may the force be with you to slay some bacon ;)
Finally @E-Star ‘s Bio is added! She can play AB on two iPads simultaneously, seriously? We all know that She is very talented graphic designer also, this point should also be added :)
@amandeep yeah IKR that skill of playing simultaneously I kept hidden for a while now. But is really affective when trying to reach for the top ;)
There are so many sides to little me, explaining them is nearly impossible. I think @birdleader did a great job at capturing the majority of them, leaving out the designer skills was my own decision, cause I found the other stuff more fun to tell. Many of you know I can do my magic with the design stuff, but I think not many of you know I am doing the “vogeltjesdans” to please the AB gods :D
Since this is a miscellaneous question I decided to post it here:
@burpie, found one of your comments(July 31) in the forum(No more daily rewards on some ab games?) where you have addressed that you have reverted to v1.3 on ABSp for daily free Space Eagles. Since you are playing on Android I thought you would help me out a bit.
1. How do you revert back? GP only has v1.5.2(I would like to revert back too). By any chance do you mean the unofficial apks out there on the web?
2. Is it possible to back up eagles from another version(1.3) and restore it with scores, stars, feathers from another version(like 1.5.2)?
Any kind of help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
Whoever was making the Angry Birds walkthroughs from Poached Eggs to Birdday Party, thanks very much. I couldn’t have achieved Golden Eggs 4, 7, 12, 17, 21, 25, or the King Pig Level without them.
At the end of each video, there is a Credit screen showing who made the vids.
I know most people don’t realize that because most (myself included) will pause the vid when the level complete score shows up.
Congrats to @sweetp on becoming an admin!
Thank you @sparty83, it’s been a pleasure helping out around the Nest!
Just noticed that Fujitoast is no longer listed, has he left? n if so, did I miss the leaving party?
@leggy Fuji has not been particularly active here for some time. He has been working on his own projects, and of course he will always be welcomed back. He’s a huge part of our history and success. :)
Well said @amslimfordy. @FujiToast is a friend and he and I still talk regularly. I have to say, I do miss him here on the nest.
@BirdLeader @AMSlimfordy @FujiToast — Gaah! I knew Fuji had been mostly working on RocketPond for the last couple of years, but didn’t know he had moved on. Hope Fuji has great success in his new projects, as he surely must. Didn’t he do all of the early videos?
It may be late, but Fuji’s departure from all ABN / RocketPond endeavors deserves a special post. Can you say what he is doing now?
I’ve only been here a short time, but I wanted to thank everyone involved, @birdleader for creating the site, @amslimfordy and the rest for all the work it takes to maintain. ironically a year or two ago my wife had a transient affair with Angry Birds. I personally didn’t see the cause for fascination. a few months ago a major medical issue was preventing me from getting more than two or three hours of sleep a night. one morning at about 0200 I happened to see angry birds in the App Store. I tried the free version, then a day or two later bought hd. I’ve since played through AB twice, SW twice, seasons, rio twice, space, even tried go (but I drive so badly I’m afraid the internet police will charge me with a DUI and confiscate my ipad). this website has helped me keep what little sanity I have. without the tips, strategies, and the comraderie I would probably be sitting in the corner mumbling to myself about pigs and lasers. I became unchained to pay back, however slightly, for the hours (and hours and hours and hours etc..) of entertainment AB and this site have provided. just knowing I’m not the only one who will sit throwing the same bird over and over on the same level, one time for 7 hours, helps immensely. I may not get the highest scores, but I’ve gotten a couple decent ones, mostly due to strats posted by others. so once again, thanks to all involved.
@Jkhab69 Quite a lot of people on ABN (and in the BP) have a similar story to yours. Apparently, when smart people encounter a life-affecting issue, our first response is to fling small feathered creatures into porcine construction sites. Nobody really know why, but it seems to help. Anyway, we’re glad to have you around, and hope to see you in the BP more. Also, thanks for becoming uncaged and supporting the site. It’s guys like you that keep it going.
@jkhab69 Thank you, not only for sharing your story, but also for taking the time to leave a note of appreciation and getting uncaged. Wished it wasn’t due to a major medical issue that your path lead to the nest, but happy the Nest and all the wonderful people in it, kept you from turning into a mumbling frustrated birdie. See you soon in the Bloated Pig I’ll buy you a beverage!
@e-star it all worked out for the best. I ended up here, and with the other people who as @kelanie said, fling small feathered creatures into porcine construction sites. I just wish there were more AB levels. I didn’t get addicted to bad piggies, I didn’t get addicted to Stella, I got addicted to angry birds. hopefully Rovio remembers what made them so profitable. at least this site helps to put a new spin on old levels with the daily challenge. yet another benefit !!!
@kelani Welcome to the team!! I am sure all the nesters will benifit from keloogle and its speedy information :)
Keep up the good work my friend!
@e-star Aw, thanks. :) I’ve been helping my fellow nesters since I first learned my way around, and I’m honored that my contributions have earned me a spot on this awesome team. I also can’t forget to mention that my being here is all thanks to you! Had we not become such good friends, this opportunity would not have happened. So, dank u, mijn speciale nederlandse vriend! (I hope that’s right!)
My thanks also to @birdleader for taking a chance on a new guy. I’m proud to be a nester, and part of the team, and will do whatever I can to help make the nest an even more awesome place!
@kelani You got the Dutchie part it right Keloogle ;) and you are welcome! But I merely pointed out there was a busy bee in the Nest doing everything in his power to help where he could ;)
@Kelani — Congratulations! Do we really call you keloogle in the BP? I know we call you lots of things (all friendly, of course), but I don’t remember that one, unless I’ve been misreading it.
I didn’t know about the acting career!
@mvnla2 Thank you! A few people have called me that. It usually pops up whenever someone asks me a question because they’re too lazy/busy to do their own search. :) The acting career was just a way to stay entertained during a few boring summers. I’m definitely not an actor! :)
Congratulations @Kelani aka keloogle omgiraffe too funny !!
Is it true your a t.v Star lol..seriously great job you’ve been a big help :)
@Kathy Thanks, and nooo. In DC, I was just a random guy (waiter) in the background that nobody notices or cares about. And in Carrie, I just drove a car across the screen. Only one you can even see my (dirty) face was Patriot, and I’ll never tell which scene that is :)
Lol @Kelani now you know I’ll be looking closely at those shows and trying to figure who is you all the while bragging ‘I know a star’ Roflmao ;) ;)
A ♥HUGE CONGRATULATIONS♥ @Kelani, and welcome to the team! You’re always lending a helping hand, and we appreciate it very much!
@sweetp Thanks! Maybe now I can start repaying all the times you helped me with stuff :)
@kelani congratulations! :D
Thanks @rowdypup :)
I just saw this @kelani, Congrats & I know the other Admins will appreciate all the help
@justpast40 Thank you :) I’ll have to do a lot of helping to even the score from all the times they’ve helped me.
whatever happened to fujitoast?
@admins is @mightyred now part of Abn team ,sorry i don’t know his / her @ name. Just vwondering due to all the seasons videos ?
You are amazing, respect is at the highest level. I am duly humbled. Thank you for the update to this link.
I guess what I am trying to express is your appreciation of the past admistratives and their contributions to your site and it’s continued existence.
Excellence at the highest level
You are a class act at the highest level, many thanks to a good person
Perfectly spoken @wrw01
Can’t believe I just found this page :(
Didn’t realize The Nest is down to just 2 admins helping @Birdleader
My deepest respect and Thanks to @amslimfordy, without whom I never would have joined the leaderboard, or found my way around the Nest.
and to @sal9 Who always was quick to reply, even to my dumbest of questions, and @E-star well, I don’t have enough room here or words to express my thoughts.
It’s always nice to see you all pop in now and again.
and of course @fujitoast who deserves more than a mention, got us all started with his great videos.
Of course also deepest admiration for @mighty-red-1 for taking over the video position and helping with issues,
@sweetp for being everywhere in the Nest at once, ,can’t keep up with her!
Much thanks @Birdleader again for creating this awesome community, not just a ‘help’ website but an actual community of friends :D
I second everything what @kathy has said
@birdleader I have been in the clouds with my new path of life with my amazing (but full time up to 70 hrs a week) job. I didn’t realize you have been downsized to so little helpers around the nest in the admin team. I miss this place for sure and I wish there was room in my life to keep doing what I did. Know that I will always have one huge room in my heart for this place!! Thank you some much for the tribute to me and the great Slim and Sal, it really means a lot to me!
I will always have one eye on the Nest, so to all the Nesters… when in need of assistance, you know where to find me and I will try to fly in on a dime!
@wrw01 Pops… so long no speak, miss my adoptive dad! will write soon, but know that your always respectful of the elderly young girl is doing marvelous and enjoying working her bum off
@kathy always sweet and warmest in the Nest, much love and thank you for you kind words to all of us!
@everyone I am so sorry for flying off into a brave new world that consumed me more than I realized. With last years rocky and shaky life in the pits, I climbed out and landed in one amazing adventure at my new job. It is amazing! we went from 60 employees at the beginning of the year to 130 at this moment. It is a google like workplace and we all went to Barcelona for the weekend, free of charge. So partied with 90 of my fellow young colleagues and it was a mazing. So yeah,… work hard but also play hard to!
lots of love flying in from dutchieland!
@e-star may we thank you for all the good work you did for us players. I’m talking as my self that you learned me a lesson in persistence and patience. You drove me almost nuts with your video’s. How did she do that, here nothing is falling as in the video. How come?
Slowly the skills of all of us (I hope not to insulting other players) have raised a lot. Especially with and by your video’s.
If we get a chance, we will take over the stick, because we want to keep this Nest live and kicking.
So again, many, many thanks.
Of course thanks to all the admins that retired, without them there wasn’t a nest.
@bernersenn Congratulations to your official announcement as a Member of the Angry Birds Nest Crew!! Wooot!!!
Thank you @birdleader for such amazing introduction of all current and past Admins. Great Team. 👍
Hi today came some updating stuff and all my game ptogress is lost. What shall i do 3- time to start till next updating…what stupidity.
The only option here is to restore a backup that you created (hopefully) created recently.
