Hummingbird nests are incredibly rare to find for a number of reasons.  One being that the eggs are so small that their nests can be difficult to spot.  Another reason is that they are well camouflaged.  In order for you to actually see one we found this article for you.  We hope you enjoy it!

From the article: Both animals and people can easily look right at a hummingbird nest and think it is just a small knot on a tree limb," the website notes.

Described as some of the "natural world's daintiest structures," hummingbird nests are constructed out of seeds, fibers from leaves, spider silk and other materials, according to bird enthusiast Jon Friedman.

Though no longer widely killed for their feathers, some hummingbirds are threatened in the wild due to loss and destruction of their habitat, Defenders of Wildlife reports. Some hummingbirds, like the scissor-tailed hummingbird and the sapphire-bellied hummingbird, are considered endangered species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
