In Uruguay we used to see Horneros’ nests everywhere, this peculiarity nest was built on a window in the building where I live. Having the nest “there” I accumulated over 600 photos.It all started for curiosity and I was fortunate to witness it every day.
After seeing the picture my family and friends were very shocked. I thought it would be good to put this picture online to share with you, mainly those of you who care about the environment, so here they are, I hope you like it. I am not a photographer.
This beautiful nest was built between late September and 30 November. And this couple birds work from 8 to 10 hours a day!

These small creatures like birds are surprisingly diligent and work hard when people recognize them as the ultimate nest-builders. These Nests are their home which they build depending on their location, size, available materials and diet.
We can say that each species has its own methods and techniques that it uses to build a nest without getting confused. There, they lay eggs, raise young birds and teach them how to prepare to leave the nest.
When parents leave the nest to search for food for little birds the nest must be well protected
Nesting and nesting period
In temperate regions, birds usually breed in spring or early summer, but dates may vary from year to year, depending on various factors (weather, available food resources, etc.). The hatching normally coincides with the time when the food is most abundant.
The beginning of the nesting cycle also varies by region: birds in the southern and western areas are usually earlier than birds nesting in the east or the north.
Some species can nest several times during the year, especially if their first nesting has failed for various reasons (predation, bad weather).
The different broods may be spaced or sometimes overlapping. Replacement spawning, later, is also faster.
The breeding season usually ends at the end of the summer or in autumn, with the moulting of the parents. Some sedentary species continue to rear offspring very late in the year, while migratory species such as swallows, which moult in their winter quarters, breed until the beginning of their migration.Global warming could alter the “classical” breeding dates for species, particularly migratory ones because it leads to earlier arrivals in spring and later departures in autumn.
Respect for birds
The discovery of a nest is an exciting thing, but you must first think of birds and avoid failure of reproduction:
1-Do not harvest the eggs.
2-Avoid photographing nesting birds, especially if there are nestlings.
3-Do not disturb the nest and do not remove the vegetation that conceals it.
4-Be discreet, make short and limited visits.
5-Make sure that the visits do not disturb the parents (if they start shouting or waiting for you to leave for their nest, it’s because your presence bothers them).
6-Always place the interest of the bird before your curiosity.
