Photo Essay: Hummingbird nest
It’s spring, and bird nests are popping up everywhere in Nanaimo. Some, however, are harder to spot than others. A mere one inch tall, Anna’s hummingbird nests are well-camouflaged, made of leaves, moss, cattail, and other plant materials. The female takes about a week to build it and uses spider webs to bind it together. Amazingly, the eggs are only 1.2-1.4 cm long.
