a Hummingbird's Nest
- The babies
have filled up the nest and opened their eyes!
- Did you
see the new green feathers starting to grow?
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.)
