Many of nature’s constructions made with utmost love and care elicit warmth and coziness. One such creation is bird nests built on treetops.
But, this certain innovative hummingbird went one more step forward to make her nest even cozier for her babies. This nest has a roof.
Bianca Caroline Soarse, a conservationist and wildlife educationalist, is used to seeing many birdhouses in the jungle close to her home in Paragvay. But, this particular birdhouse that she spotted last spring was definitely unique. Soarse was impressed by what she saw, because she had seen five hummingbird nests that day and this particular one was the most resourceful.
This nest had a little leafy roof, making it the best-looking one in the neighbourhood.
As Soarse continued to closely watch this mom-to-be for the upcoming days and weeks, she noticed that this hummingbird mom has had two babies. It’s obvious that on hot and sunny days, these hummingbird babies surely took advantage of their mom’s pensive planning.
Soarse hopes that such creative endeavors by nature’s creatures will inspire people to take better care of nature.
