Description

How does a bird make its nest? Very carefully! Many birds build intricate nests out of twigs, leaves, feathers, mud--even dollar bills and clothespins. some nests are gigantic, housing hundreds of birds or weighing as much as a car, while others are just large enough to keep one egg safe and warm.
