Birdwatching doesn't always mean hiking to exotic locations or wandering deep into the forest in search of feathered friends. Adaptable to almost any environment, many species of birds have made our homes their own. Whether pecking about city streets for crumbs, nesting in a windowsill or dining from a feeder in your own back yard, you never have to look far for the species of wild birds right at home around human beings.



A bird's egg is designed to be incredibly strong. In fact, if you hold a regular chicken egg, you won't be able to break it by squeezing it in your hand. Eggs are designed to withstand an incredible amount of pressure from all sides -- it's only when a single spot is targed (like cracking it on the edge of a bowl) that it's susceptible to break.
