Generally birds build their nest on the trees, on big rocks, in caves, or to the rooves of the houses. Some birds make a burrow in the soil and lay eggs there. Although some birds don’t hatch their young ones, many birds hatch their eggs and take care of them until they are grown up and earn their food. Hatching of the eggs is taken up by either male or female bird or sometimes both of them alternatively. But some birds like cuckoo don’t take up the responsibility of hatching the eggs, instead they lay eggs on other nests.
