Great story and pictures! That nest was so carefully made - I love it!
When we were small guys, living in the wilds of the Great Northeast, my brothers and I climbed trees like Orangs. One day in doing so, I / we found a hummers nest in the black cherry beside the house, It was the size of half a walnut, and it had an egg in it. Mom warned us to "leave it alone, and stay away" yeah right. We never touched anything, and heeded Mom's warnings. Found the egg casing on the ground one day and went to peek, and there he was, tiniest thing I ever see. Told Mom, and that was the end of climbing for a while. Beautiful little birds. Today, 45 years ago, my wife and I look forward to having them come every year.
THAT WAS AWESOME! totally so cool to see that! Thanks for sharing
All you who get hummers should consider yourselves very lucky! Here in Long Island surburbia - I've never seen one. They are few and far between and it's much too busy where I am for them to come have a visit. I've tried everything to attract them but to no avail. Oh well, I guess that's why I've planned my vacations around where I know I'll get the chance to see them in their summer digs!
I adore hummers, thanks so much for sharing that!!!
