♦ Burrow- Some birds choose burrows excavated by other animals.

♦ Cupped nest- Birds build a nest in traditional style. Its shape is like a bowl. The size of this nest depends upon the size of the bird.
♦ Ground nest – Some birds make a leap on the ground instead of making a traditional nest. They lay their eggs in it.
♦ Mound- Some of the birds bury their eggs, and such type of home is called mound.

♦ Scrape -This nest is very simple to build. This is a shallow depression in the soil.
♦ Sphere- Some birds collect plant fiber, grass and create this nest. This nest is also like a pendant. But the structure of this nest is circular, having only one small round hole.
