There aren’t many structures in nature that can rival bird nests in terms of their ability to evoke a feeling of homeliness and warmth like they can.

If you take a look at these nests, you can see the intricacy and craftsmanship required to build them. Birds carefully craft these nests in the branches of trees so they can provide a safe and secure environment for their young.

This particular hummingbird momma found an ingenious way of making her place even cozier, (scroll down to see how)

Bianca Caroline Soares, a conservationist who lives in Paraguay and took the photographs, is no stranger to seeing hummingbird nests perched on branches in the jungle close to her home. She was the one who observed and photographed this unique nest.

But during a particular stroll in the spring of the previous year, she came across one that was unlike any other she’d seen before.

This nest had a roof.

Needless to say, Soares was impressed.

That day, I came across five different hummingbird nests, but this one took the cake for creativity, said Soares.

This hummingbird’s nest was undeniably the most attractive one in the area because of the leafy roof, which provided both protection from the sun and from precipitation.

And it turned out to be a great place to start a family, too.

In the weeks and months that followed the initial sighting, Soares continued to pay her customary visits to the ingenious bird’s nest, during which she watched the young family for which she had constructed the nest.

Soares stated, “She had two hummingbird babies,” and on the hottest days, those babies most certainly benefited from their mother’s thoughtful planning with the shade protection that she provided for them.

Soares expressed the hope that people will be motivated to better care for the environment as a result of the thoughtful planning of the little mom.
