One of the Reasons I Love Spring

One of the many things I love about living in this climate is the variety of birds all year around. A true pleasure for me in recent years has been to watch a particular pair of hummingbirds (I'm not sure which particular kind) that have come back to the tree outside our office for at least three years now.

This is not a great picture, but look almost in the dead centre.

Now a little closer in.

She is so tiny in there. The nest is not bigger than a golf ball. Last year I remember taking a boo at them and finding both Ma & Pa all scrunched in. I don't know how they do it.

As time goes on I'll keep watch and see if I can't get a picture of them once the babies hatch.

Do you have a favourite bird in your neighbourhood?

Oh my GOSH!!That is soooo COOL!! Thanks for posting the photos for me. :) I'd love to hear if they have babies. I can't imagine them in that little bitty nest.

Cool. Cool. Cool!!
