Pat.....this nest is spectacular with the flowering tree around it!

She is a beautiful "bleu" hummingbird,or at least has some pretty blue patches. I will be back!

Ummm - no flowers yet - that's lichen - but she has shown artistic talent, decorating the nest with it Smile

I just read the most recent blog update on Eric's site - http://www.hummingbirdsupclose.com/blog/welcome-tweet - and he said this might be the first nest for Tweet - she just hatched last year. I'll try to ask if he knows how many eggs there are.

His site says two - I have seen a full one and a hint of one hiding inside the nest wall!

Thank you JudyB and Pat for the information... this should be interesting to watch this new Mom... she is on her own ... unlike our eagles who have the male around to help..
