How awesome.....LOVE hummingbirds.....

Sharon Margiotta

I wondered for a long time if hummingbirds had feet .. because you rarely see one sitting still! But look at this ... and the excitement of possibly seeing teeny little ones ... I really hope you can sneak your point and shoot for the babies!

Carol, Wow what a great pic! How priviledged is that, a mother bird choosing a tree in your garden.
Looking forward to more pics once the babies arrive!
Only wish we had hummingbirds in New Zealand, they look fascinating.
Thank you.

Hi Carol-
These little jewels are one on my favorite birds. How fortunate you are to be able to witness them in your own backyard. What a precious nest. I am so excited that you shared this. I first became fascinated with them while visiting my sister in Mill Valley. Her agapanthas draw them in and they put on a show as the sparkle in the sun. I think their wings beat about 60 times a second leaving only a blur for us to see. All this movement is what causes them to eat so much and then they fall into a stupor-like sleep at night. I guess I am going into teacher mode here. You are in for observing some very interesting birdlife. Enjoy the show and send more pics please - it will be vicarious pleasure. Be very well.

Carol!!! We had hummingbirds when we lived in New Mexico. I have pictures of a nest and was able to shoot the inside while the momma was gone! It was amazing! Their eggs are soooo little! It is a beautiful thing! I was just talking to a gal today at the antique store looking at my chandelier birdfeeders. There are so many fun things to do and make to get our "winged-friends" taken care of! Blessings, debbie ****I will have to hunt for those pictures!

What fun, Carol. Randy and I got to watch ,start to finish ,the same amazing site. There was a nest on our back porch in a Ficus tree. We were even fortunate enough to be there when the babies flew away. Enjoy the experience. It doesn't hapen often. Smile.
