Here's something you don't see very often, a sharp eyed friend of mine spotted it and we marched into the bush with a set of steps and my camera. The nest was about the size of a coffee cup at a fancy restaurant...

For such little birds they sure do have some big snappers! That 2nd one is great. What a find and capture!!

Thanks for sharing this unique moment.

Wow good eyes. My hummers seem to have disappeared. Haven't seen any in a couple of weeks.:(

The birds in the second one aren't hummers though are they?
I love them both! The hummer nest was a fortunate find-with friends like that you can't go wrong!!! 2:cool: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Did you know that hummers decorate their nest? This one is lovely with the blue green lichen attached to the sides of the nest. We only have one pair this year at our feeders.
