A NEW FAMILY MOVED IN

We discovered something really neat close to our balcony this morning; an Anna's Hummingbird has built a nest in one of the Bradford Pear trees in the parkway. What a treat! I can get real close looks with my binoculars and managed to get a few photos.


The nest is built in what appears to be a good location, somewhat protected from rain and anchored by spider webs against wind. It's also in a well-camouflaged location away from the eyes of the neighborhood crows.


It will be fun watching the progress of this new family!


Momma on her nest. We got to watch her adding material this morning and smooshing herself around in it to make it just right.
