The Hummingbird Nest
Do you want to find a hummingbird nest and witness the amazing birth and beginning days of a hummingbird's life?
Most of us are awe inspired at the very thought of how tiny a nest and eggs must be.
Why does it help us to use the nesting material in order to see a nest? Hummingbirds are masters of nest building. We certainly were not surprised to hear this. These birds never cease to intrigue us.
Read through all the information here
to learn about them and watch the video below which demonstrates how you
can find a nest using a nesting material kit!
Not only are the nests tiny, they are usually well hidden because of being decorated with moss, lichen, grass and bark. In a further effort to protect them from predators, hummingbirds sometimes hide nests under leaves.
Using the nesting material kit gives you a much greater chance to see the nest. Imagine watching the babies as they grow and mature. Important to know is that you are helping the hummingbirds.
If you are located in a city or a location without many trees,
nesting material can be even more valuable to the survival of
hummingbirds. Even if your property does have trees, the hummingbirds
still enjoy the easy access to nesting materials.
You might even prevent them from being caught in a spider's web,
while trying to acquire the webbing they sometimes use to build their
nests. Hummingbirds are losing some natural habitat today and appreciate
all we do for them.
Have you ever hoped to find a nest?
The "Nesting Material Kit" may help!
Hummingbirds will return year after year and find the material from the kit to rebuild their nests. Those females that were born the year before will also return and use the material to build a new one.
Keep an eye out for them to gather the material and follow them to their nest.
Once found, you can monitor it to observe their life cycle from eggs to newborns.
