What prompts birds to build nests where they do? Some of their real estate choices are real head-scratchers. Over the years, we hosted our challenge Funky Nests in Funky Places. We marveled at the interesting bird nests stories through the artistic expression of so many! Participants shared photos, videos, drawings, paintings, others wrote stories and poetry.
On this page, we share some of the poems from our beloved challenge, and from others who keep inspired. They tell a story or teach us about our favorite feathered friends.
Explore, be inspired, and enjoy!
