Anna’s Hummingbird Nest

Anna’s Hummingbird Nest. 

I found this nest a few days ago.  I must admit, I couldn’t help but think of her during the night as the wind blew and the rain came down.  I can’t imaging how much the branches most have been moving around as she sat there keeping the two little jellybean sized eggs warm.   

They have a fourteen day incubation period, I look forward to seeing the chicks.

  2. I have a lot of hummingbird attracting plants and
    hummingbird feeders
    around my garden, but I have never been fortunate enough to see one
    nesting.  Wow!  What a blessing!  I love the way the leaf that
    rests behind “mom” and nest gives us an idea of just how tiny these nests
    are!  Great shot!!!

    Hi Lindy,

    Thanks!

    A nest is really a treat to find and watch. They can be hard to find, they really blend in. I found this one by watching the birds. They kept returning to the same shrub, so I finally started investigating further. It still took a while to find it, even though I was practically looking at it! I hope you find one.

    Ron
