If you look close, you can see the little hummingbird sitting in her nest on the left above the bottom leaves of the hanging plant. Was wondering why I was being dive bombed while watering!

To put in perspective, it is a geranium leaf that where she built the nest ...which is pretty tiny! Gusty wind yesterday and was worried the nest would fall but it just swayed with the wind. Babies should be here in a couple of weeks!!

That is just plain cute. Lucky you, to be able to experience those little wonders AND watch them grow from babies.

I'm SO jealous! Our little hummers won't be here for a few more weeks.

Our hummers won't arrive for at least a couple of weeks. I should get the feeder out and get it ready for them. We are expecting snow tonight. Will it ever end?

About 50 ft. away I have a big palm tree with a pair of barn owls. Love to watch them come out an take off for hunting, usually a bit past dusk. Hope they don't go after the little hummingbird.

I have hummingbirds year round. I hear they fly south to warmer weather....Silly question, but I wonder how they know when to return to you all with the snowy weather?
