Everything You Need to Know About Hummingbird Nests

Miniature Marvels: Hummingbird nests are tiny wonders, often no larger than a walnut shell, intricately woven with soft materials like moss, spider silk, and lichen.

 Hidden Havens: Nests are typically nestled in the branches of trees or shrubs, camouflaged with lichen or moss to blend seamlessly into their surroundings.

Engineering Feats: Despite their small size, hummingbird nests are marvels of engineering, constructed with remarkable strength

Female Fortitude: It's the female hummingbird who takes on the sole responsibility of building the nest, using her beak and feet to weave together materials with incredible dexterity.

Egg-cellent Care: Once eggs are laid (usually two), the female diligently incubates them, using her body heat to keep them warm until they hatch.

Nestling Nourishment: After hatching, nestlings are fed a diet of regurgitated nectar and insects by both parents, ensuring they grow strong and healthy.

Rapid Growth: Hummingbird nestlings grow at an astonishing rate, doubling in size within just a few days and fledging from the nest within 2-3 weeks of hatching.
