Swedish term or phrase: trycker
Hello

In the sentence

Beckasinen är oerhört beroende av sin färgteckning eftersom den endast kan skydda sig mot faror genom sin osynlighet då den trycker i lämplig omgivning

does 'trycker' = nest???

I only know the verb " ruva" for "to sit on its eggs"

Just need a confirmation or correction

Thanks
