How do hummingbirds build their nests? 

Site Selection: Female hummingbirds choose high, concealed spots in trees or shrubs for nesting. 

Gathering Materials: They collect plant fibers, mosses, and spider silk for nest construction. 

Weaving and Binding: Hummingbirds weave materials together, using spider silk for elasticity. 

Lining the Nest: Soft materials like feathers and plant down line the interior for insulation. 

Nest Decoration: Some add decorative elements like lichen or moss for camouflage. 

Nest Maintenance: Regular adjustments and repairs are made to strengthen the nest. 

Incubation and Rearing: Females incubate eggs for about two weeks; both parents care for hatchlings until fledging.
