Bird Nests

A bird nest is the spot in which a bird lays and incubates its eggs and raises its young. For some species, a nest is simply a shallow depression made in sand; for others, it is the knot-hole left by a broken branch, a burrow dug into the ground, a chamber drilled into a tree, an enormous rotting pile of vegetation and earth, a shelf made of dried saliva or a mud dome with an entrance tunnel.

Group Details

The smallest bird nests are those of some hummingbirds, tiny cups which can be a mere 2 cm (0.79 in) across and 2–3 cm (0.79–1.18 in) high. At the other extreme, some nest mounds built by the dusky scrub-fowl measure more than 11 m (36 ft) in diameter and stand nearly 5 m (16 ft) tall. Most birds build a new nest each year, though some refurbish their old nests. In most species, the female does most or all of the nest construction, though the male often helps.
