We are beyond words in gratitude toward Rovio, who surprised us with the commemoration of the third level in Angry Birds Seasons The Pig Days.
Here are the kind words from Rovio’s blog:
Can you believe it? Angry Birds Nest is four years old! As the largest and most ultimate of Angry Birds fan communities, this Pig Day level honors all our awesome fans who started the site and made so popular. Thanks to all of you! Squawk!
For those who don’t know — or for those who just enjoy hearings he story — the idea for AngryBirdsNest began in May 2010 when our very own Commander in Beak @BirdLeader and his then-two-year-old son became mildly obsessed with Angry Birds. Instead of just creating the site, he professionally asked the Mighty Eagle’s permission: Rovio CMO Peter Vesterbacka. With a green light in hand, BL created… Well this:
Since then, we’ve seen AngryBirdsNest grow from that humble little page in the screenshot to a fully-fledged community — apparently worthy of our own level in an Angry Birds app!
But as much as this is a celebration for us and for BirdLeader, absolutely none of it would be possible without you: The Community, The Ultimate Flingers, The Unparalleled Fans, The Nesters. So from the bottom of our hearts…
Thank you for making us the community that we are today. We hope to continue to unveil more and more features that will make other so-called “Angry Birds Fan Sites” blush.
In fact, we might be working on something totally awesome right now that will revolutionize this site forever. (Yeah, we learned how to tease from Rovio.)
Happy Birdday and Congratulations to the community
U help us clearing levels much better than Mighty Eagle
U all r way u than mighty, u all r ultimate
Keep up the good work!!!
@Birdleader On big heartfelt thank you! You have created the place where every Nester feels at home and I am so proud to be a part of this all. Happy birthday and what a huge honor for a fansite to get “in” the real game! LOVE it! Also a big applause to all the Nesters for contributing and besides @Birdleader, I want to thank @AMSlimfordy @Sal and @SweetP too! You guys rock!

Happy 4th Birthday ABN! And congrats to @birdleader! I’m surprised that Rovio made a level based on the community.
As always, keep the good work going!
And as would the Soldier from Team Fortress 2 would say: “Each in every one of you deserves a medal!”
Congratulations to Greg, Slim, Dr. Omega and everyone else I forgot. Also congrats to all the nesters!! This one’s for you!
Ha! Thanks. Now go ahead and register for an account! You’ll only be harassed a little. :)
Always had one, just forgot my password ;)
Thanks to all of you and to Rovio! It has truly been an amazing four years. I know it goes without saying — and I’ve said it before — but you all our the soul of the Nest. Without your contributions and voices it just wouldn’t be the same. The same is true for our @admins and contributors. Their tireless efforts keep the Nest safe, fun, competitive, useful, friendly … and the list goes on. Now here is to the next four years!
Congratulations to Bird Leader and all at Angry Birds Nest. I was really chuffed to see the birthday level dedicated to the site. Well deserved and a fun level too … all the best :)
Wow @habanero! Now there’s a name I haven’t seen in awhile. Thanks so much for stopping by and the kudos. It means a lot. Hope life is treating you well. -BL
Happy Birdday ABN.
I’m a new player and you are very very helpful for me.
Also, many thanks for all the players who share their strategies.
Thanks @bonzai! A belated welcome to the Nest.
No, THANK YOU! You’re the ones who take your own time out of your day to help other players!
I’m just as surprised as everyone else. Rovio really does care for us, as well as the rest of the flingers here.
Happy birday! And many more!
Happy Birthday to all, and to all Happy Flinging!
A heartfelt Thanks to all that contribute to this site.
“We hope to continue to unveil more and more features that will make other so-called “Angry Birds Fan Sites” blush.”
Well, at least you’re modest. :P
Is that the GAME OF THRONES iron throne that pig is sitting on?, lol
@tmax, was my second thought after WOW, an ABN Birthday Level!
I think yes, King Pig as Joffrey, look at his tiny bow, with a bit fantasy, it could be his crossbow.
Actually, my first thought too was whoa!…. I knew this site was closer to.Rovio.then.any other, but that is pretty significant…. and what an.accomplishment you sarted Birdleader…. congrats and an earnest “well done” to all admins and competing yet suportive members. The game wouldnt nearly be the same for my girlfriend and I without this site. We do the challenge daily and know.some off you just by nicknames only. Although I do not know them, they go by “crush” and he is.right.around my skill range. Me being “crash”, I must try hard to beat them in the challenges,lol. Welp, keep up the splendid work everybody
Happy Birthday to @Birdleader for the conception of your outstanding idea! Look how your “baby” has grown and matured. Your insight, support and dedication has made this site the best. This nester says thank you.
What a great honor!!! A fan site that is so respected by the parent games’ executives, they dedicate a level to the fan site. What a privilege to be involved in Angry Birds Nest and play the Angry Bird games.
I also want to thank the ABN staff and the other Nesters who volunteer their time and mental resources to assist in making this site a great place to visit each day. Your efforts are appreciated.
What a great day to be addicted to Angry Birds and be involved in the Angry Birds Nest.
@birdleader, congratulations to you & the other @Admins. Rovio’s inclusion of this great family friendly site speaks volumes …. Happy Birdday/Anniversary from one especially greatful Nester.
CONGRATULATIONS!!! This is big day for our beloved ABN. I was pleasently surprised when I openned ABS yesterday and saw they celebrated ABN’s birthday with special level. That’s great honor, really great for you.
