A Sharp Little Hummingbird Constructs a Roofed Home

There are only a few constructions in nature that can provide a sense of coziness and warmth quite like bird nests.

If you take a look at these nests, you can see the intricacy and craftsmanship required to build them. These treetop homes are built with love and care by birds to raise their babies.

This particular hummingbird momma found an ingenious way of making her place even cozier, (scroll down to see how)

Conservationist Bianca Caroline Soares, who observed this special nest and took the photos, is no stranger to seeing hummingbird nests perched on branches in the jungle near her home in Paraguay.

But on a particular walk last Spring, she spotted one unlike any she’d seen before.

This nest had a roof.

Needless to say, Soares was impressed.

“I saw five hummingbird nests that day, but this was the most ingenious,” Soares said.

Thanks to the shade and rain cover provided from that leafy roof, this hummingbird’s home was easily the nicest in the neighborhood.

And it turned out to be a great place to start a family, too.

Soares continued to visit the clever bird’s nest, observing the tiny family that she’d built the nest for in the weeks and months that followed that first sighting,

“She had two hummingbird babies,” Soares said, and on the hottest days, those babies surely benefitted from their mother’s thoughtful planning with the shade protection.

Soares said she hopes the little mom’s thoughtful planning will inspire people to take better care of nature.

The hummingbird’s thoughtfulness most definitely helped her own tiny family. With time, all her babies grew strong enough to set out on their own.

Hopefully, they took a lesson from the design of their childhood home when it comes time to build their own nests.
