The homes of birds are protective places for them. Homes protect them from cold, heat, rain, and enemies attack. The basic need of a living object is shelter, and we name it home. But there are different names for the homes of different birds. In this part, we will see names for the homes of birds.

Some birds live in natural homes, some create their own, and some live in homes created by other birds. Birds build nests to live.

Types of nests

Different birds live in different nests.

Here are the types of the nest-

  • Burrow
  • Cavity nest
  • Cupped nest
  • Ground nest
  • Mound
  • Pendant
  • Platform
  • Scrape nest
  • Sphere                      

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

♦ Cavity nest- We see that there are cavities in some trees. Birds use those cavities as their home. But some birds create their own ‘cavity.

♦ 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. Such a type of home is called a mound.

♦ Pendant- Some birds collect plant fiber and grass and create this nest. It looks like a sack. We see these nests hung on the branches of trees.

♦ Platform- Some birds build nests bigger in size. These nests are permanent, and they use these nests for many years.

♦ Scrape -This nest is very simple to build. This is a shallow depression in the soil.

♦ Sphere- Some birds collect plant fiber and grass and create this nest. This nest is also like a pendant.    But this nest’s structure is circular, with only one small round hole.
