A hummingbird mama built a nest on a metal twirly at Darla Hill's Kent home. She has been taking pictures of the nest in the unusual - and some might say risky - spot.

Have you noticed any bird nests in unusual places? The Cornell Lab of Ornithology wants your photos for their Funky Nests in Funky Places Contest.

You could win binoculars, cameras, bird guides, bird feeders, bird apps, posters, books, bird sound CDs or an iPad.

Peek into a hanging flower basket, your garden art or any nook and cranny and see if you've got a bird family nesting there.

Cornell is inviting bird lovers to take a photo, create some artwork, shoot video, write a story or a poem, or create a sculpture. Just show a bird’s nest built in some out-of-the-way or out-of-this-world place.

The contest is run by the Celebrate Urban Birds project
