Check For THESE Small Nests and Eggs Before You Trim This Spring

Do you often find nests in your garden or home? Nature can be wonderful and very beautiful. Trees, flowers, the sunrise and sunset, great weather. But it can be pesky and a little bit revolting. As soon as you sit in the grass, bees, worms, ticks, spiders come and appear. All depends on how we see the nature. Some of us see birds as a beautiful, dynamic and fascinating part of nature. Others, on contrary, are afraid or they don’t like even the simple white stain dripping down on the car windshield. Regardless of how we actually look at them and how we see the nature, wildlife experts are politely asking the public to check for tiny eggs in the greenery around their homes. That is really important to do before they actually begin to prune this year.

The USFWA – U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service experts each and every day are responsible for protecting the ecosystem. Spring time is especially important, because it’s the season when many animals reproduce. That’s why these experts shared some simple but important tips for springtime on their Facebook page. They in fact alert everybody what to do and what not to do.


This post had more than 265,000 shares from Facebook users. They care about the nature and trying to help keep safe hummingbirds. The USFWS added a strong photo to their Facebook post, showing just how small their eggs and nests really are.

They wrote, “Hummingbird eggs are small and tiny. They are about the size of jelly beans! Please always remember to safely check for nests and eggs before you trim and cut trees this spring.”

Keep Your Eyes Open For Hummingbird Eggs and Nests

This is very important message for all nature-lovers and homeowners around the world. We can find Hummingbirds all over the country. They are colorful and small birds with beautiful iridescent feathers. Their name comes from how fast they in fact flap their wings – around 80 times in second! They love making their homes in gardens where they make cozy and warm habitats. If near your home you have flowers (bright color) rich in nectar or hummingbird feeders, these tiny birds will surely find their way to your beautiful yard.

Female birds build special, delicate and small nests using moss, spider webs and leaves. Their nests and eggs are very small and tiny so we can easily miss them. One nest can have size of a quarter!

Make sure you take a close look at your garden when you crop, cut or trim your greenery this spring. You maybe have to let a branch or few slides, but think that you can save dozens of little sweet lives if you only take a moment to look a little bit closer.
