BUILD A BIRD NEST 

It is spring, and birds everywhere are building nests to create a safe, warm place to lay eggs and raise their young. Using natural materials from a backyard or household items, anyone can design and build a nest inspired by nature. Next step? Creating a giant nest for a human family.
