Bird's Nest Soup

Bird's Nest Soup has been a Chinese delicacy for over 400 years and is considered to have medicinal properties.
A few species of birds called cave swifts or swiftlets  use their saliva to construct small  nests on  the cave walls. Hong Kong and the US are the largest importers of these nests. In Hong Kong a bowl of Bird Nest Soup would cost $30  to $100 .  A kilogram of white nest can cost up to $2,000 , and a kilogram of red blood nest can cost up to $10,000.
