We have exciting news.
It's a hummingbird nest...
...and look--Mrs. Hummer is in it!
We have hummers in our yard year-round, and Daddy feeds them. Every morning when Mommy goes out with The Baby they get strafed as soon as they round the North corner of the house, so Mommy got
crafty suspicious and watched for a couple of days to see where the tiny dive-bomber was emerging from. Turns out that the bottle-brush tree is the new nursery.
Mommy peeked inside the nest when Mrs. Hummer was at the feeder, and sure enough, there's two eggs inside! Thay are tiny, like miniature jellybeans. Mommy will try to get photos but she doesn't want to scare Mrs. Hummer off, so she's no promises. (She took these with the zoom.)
Furthermore, you'll be pleased to know that our fur is in the nest! Mommy distinctly saw cat hairs poking out all over. Incubation lasts only two weeks so we'll be updating soon...
