I found a nest
Nest the size of a quarter.
After the birds were gone I wanted to give perspective to the nest.
Only 1" high and 1 1/2" wide
Mommy on her nest
She is a good mother
Through 2 very rough storms, this momma stayed on her nest, Of course I helped out by putting up a tarp over the entire tree to protect it from the down pour.
2 Jelly bean size eggs
New born baby
Just a few days old
Eyes are closed for several days.
Peek a boo
Waiting for mom to come and feed them.
Week 2 and they are getting feathers
They are starting to look like a humming bird
Twins in a nest
I named them Ella and Nino because they lived through several crazy El Nino storms.
Such happiness that both babies made it successfully to adulthood.
Mom feeding her baby.
Baby Ella in my garden
These little birds are used to me and allow me to get really close to them.
Little Nino stays close to the humming bird feeder.
He waits for mom to drink the nectar from the feeder then immediately gets feed.
Little fluff ball
I'm all grown up!
Nino finally learns how to drink from the feeder.
