Have you ever found a hummingbird nest?

I’ve never found one in nature — only in pictures.

Hummingbird nests are perfect little homes, almost as if they’ve been constructed by fairies — intricately woven with twigs, lichen, bits of feathers, and soft fluff. I learned today that sometimes the little birds will even use spiderwebs to knit their nests together.
