What to Do If You Find a Hummingbird Nest

The Internet Can't Handle the Cuteness of Hummingbird Nests

It's almost Spring, which means it's nearly time to get out in the yard and start beautifying. But before you do that, the US Fish and Wildlife Service wants to be sure you have your eyes peeled for hummingbird eggs. The eggs, which are about the size of jellybeans, are easy to miss when they're hidden in nests inside trees and shrubs.

In a post that went viral on Facebook, the US Fish and Wildlife Service shows exactly how tiny these eggs are, along with links to more information about the nests. The organization also advises that if you do find a nest, the best thing for you to do is to leave it alone. And that doesn't just go for hummingbird nests — nests of any sort can be hidden in various places in your yard, and the same warning applies: always leave it alone for the sake and safety of the birds, which can be found all across America.
