Inside a Hummingbird's Nest
(Day 12)

  • The babies have filled up the nest and opened their eyes!

  • Did you see the new green feathers starting to grow?

  • What else has turned green? Can you guess why?
    (The green lichens on the nest are alive and related to plants. Ask your teacher about them.)

  • It's hard to see, but the nest has gotten bigger along with the babies. Why? The spider silk in the nest very stretchy! (It's strong, too.)
