Bird nests are one of the few structures in nature that may create a sensation of comfort and warmth.
When you look at these nests, you can see the level of detail and workmanship that went into making them. Birds build these treetop houses with love and care to rear their young.
This particular hummingbird mother devised a clever technique to make her home more cozier (scroll down to see how)
Bianca Caroline Soares, a conservationist who noticed and photographed this unique nest, is no stranger to witnessing hummingbird nests perched on branches in the woods near her home in Paraguay.
But on a stroll this Spring, she came upon one that was unlike any she’d seen before.
There was a roof on this nest.
Soares, understandably, was taken aback.
“I observed five hummingbird nests that day,” Soares added, “but one was the most inventive.”
This hummingbird’s house was certainly the prettiest in the area, thanks to the shade and weather protection afforded by its lush roof.
It also turned out to be a fantastic spot to start a family.
In the weeks and months that followed that first glimpse, Soares continued to visit the intelligent bird’s nest, viewing the little family that she’d constructed the nest for.
“She had two hummingbird offspring,” Soares added, and those babies undoubtedly benefited from their mother’s smart shade arranging on the warmest days.
Soares expressed her hope that the tiny mom’s smart planning may inspire others to care more about the environment.
The hummingbird’s kindness undoubtedly aided her own small family. All of her children became strong enough to venture out on their own over time.
When it comes time to create their own nests, they should hopefully learn from the design of their childhood house.
