SOU

su

meaning: nest

卵巣 == ransou == (noun) ovary
空き巣 ==  akisu == (noun) prowler, sneak thief




Bottom radical is 'tree' (木). Top radical derives from the pictograph of a 'basket'. A 'basket in a tree' is a way to describe a nest. Henshall suggests taking the bottom elements as a fruit tree (果), the top three strokes as 'three sticks', and as a mnemonic: 'Three sticks atop fruit tree form nest.'
