Having a yard is one of the pleasures of being a homeowner. Living in an outside environment makes life more pleasurable. When the summer sun shines down on you, it’s great to be out on the deck or on the grass. Spending time in your own garden is one of the most pleasant activities you can engage in during mid-spring and late summer. However, if you have a yard or outdoor space on your property, you understand that it needs maintenance.

When your grass grows too tall, you need to mow it, rake up leaves, and trim trees. However, if you had pruning trees on your to-do list this month, you should put a hold on it. The government has warned individuals who want to perform this task over the summer months. And while looking for small eggs in your yard is not dangerous per see.

Hummingbirds are lovely and fun to have on your property. Every summer, my parents bring home hummingbirds. They put up a hummingbird feeder on their property, then sit in the sunroom and watch as the little birds enjoy the delicious nectar.

Even if you adore gazing at these birds, you may not be aware of how they nest. In order to protect these lovely animals, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service has established a list that will assist you in conserving them.

“Hummingbird eggs are tiny, about the size of jelly beans!” the US Fish and Wildlife Service stated. “Please remember to carefully check for nests before you trim trees and shrubs this spring.”

The recommendation is straightforward enough to follow. You may avoid the deaths of tiny hummingbirds before they hatch if you simply observe the branches you want to remove before chopping them off.

However, finding hummingbird nests isn’t as simple as it may sound. Hummingbird nests are tiny. The nests are attractive and weigh less than a tenth of an ounce. That’s minuscule. So, if you’re cutting down branches, keep an eye out for hummingbird nests since they’re difficult to spot if you aren’t attentive or aware that you should be looking for them.

Hummingbirds are very protective of their eggs and young. That’s why they conceal their nests among the trees and bushes with which they construct them. Mama birds gather moss, cobwebs, and leaves to create their nests. When you’re pruning branches, it’s easy to overlook them because you have all this vegetation at your disposal.

Hummingbirds may be found in almost every part of the country. They like gardens with lots of blooms that provide nectar. If you’ve seen hummingbirds visiting your property, there’s a good chance they’re nesting nearby. Every day, they don’t travel kilometers and kilometers from their nest to get food.

The USFWS also released a list of bird nests to encourage you to show your support for our avian brothers and sisters. One interesting fact about an eagle’s nest is that it may be reused year after year. The biggest on record was 20 feet deep and weighed approximately two tons. It’s hard to imagine raising America’s birds in anything less than a sturdy home.
