A hummingbird built her nest on the end of an internet cable over the summer in the new Environment and Natural Resources Building on the University of Arizona campus this summer. Crews from University Information Technology Services worked with the Planning, Design and Construction department to install a webcam over the nest. The webcam started feeding 24 hours a day and ended up getting over 250,000 viewers by the time the baby hummingbirds left the nest.
