FEATURED in The World As We See It ( 3/11)
FEATURED in The Birds (4/11)
* sad update…something has gotten the two eggs from the nest.. and the mama bird has flown away!! I am sooo sad*
Today, March31st, 2011, is the day I saw my first hummingbird nest, with the mama bird and one little white egg under her!!!! ♥
I have lived in San Diego for 27 years, and I am SOOO excited to finally see this wonderful creation of Nature!! ♥
The nest is in a branch of a tree that has grown very close to my house.. and so when I stand on the edge of my front walk.. there she is right above me!!!
I climbed up on a ladder to get closer.. and from time to time she would fly away, and hover around waiting for me to leave.. so I would.. and then return and try again.
I even tried to camouflage myself by attaching to the top of my head, a large leaf from my bird of paradise plant!! Now that would have made a grreat shot in and of itself!! LOL!!
This is the best I could do…since I do not have a powerful zoom lens!!
