Bird parents build nests of all different shapes and sizes to keep their young safe and warm. Bald Eagles, for example, build massive structures out of twigs that can be over 5 feet in diameter. Hummingbirds, such as this Cuban Emerald have a much more discreet approach. The cup-shaped nests they construct out of materials such as leaves and spiderwebs are only slightly bigger than a quarter and typically house two eggs weighing less than a gram a piece.

Great Big Story

 

“With a wingspan up to 10 feet in length, the mighty Andean condor is one of the largest flying birds in the world. Found throughout the Andes Mountains, the condor is a national symbol for many South American countries. This massive bird has a hairless head, which will change color depending on its emotional state. Though the condor can live up to 70 years, its population is in decline, largely due to the destruction of its natural habitat” [Great big Story]

[Great big story]

“Rarely do nature and architecture combine so perfectly as they do at the divine Greek monasteries of Meteora. The site is a collection of Greek Orthodox monasteries perched on rock pillars 1,300 feet above ground. Built by monks from the 14th to the 16th centuries, they were constructed using a network of ropes, pulleys, baskets and ladders. Without changing the landscape, the monks managed to build monasteries that seem like an extension of the mountains themselves. The name Meteora translates to “suspended in space,” and these monasteries truly seem to defy gravity.”[Great Big story]
