This human sized hummingbird nest, which sleeps three (humans) has been on display at Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo. Unfortunately today is the last day to see the nest, so check it out in this video (http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/127789228.html).
I visited the wonderfully unique nest after lunch today with zoo officials. A real hummingbird nest is about the size of a penny, which is more than the value of some people-sized homes in today’s real estate market.
At the Lincoln Park Zoo, one of the country’s last free zoos, your penny goes a lot further, and could even be a down payment on a tasty lunch at the zoo’s pond-side Cafe Brauer!
