Inside a Hummingbird's Nest

  • Did you see the tiny eggs in the hummingbird's nest?

  • If the nest is as small as a coin, the eggs must be as small as ___________? (We said jellybeans!)

  • The hummingbird made the nest from spider silk, dandelion fluff, and gray/green things called "lichens."
