This weekend during our Memorial Day celebrations, we witnessed something truly amazing.  Well, it was amazing for us.

Can you see it?  It’s only two inches across.

It’s a hummingbird nest.

She’s right above our deck.

We had never seen a hummingbird nest before and had no idea she was there until we heard her chirping when we opened our umbrella over the table.  I was lucky to get these few pictures before she flew off the nest again.

We can’t see inside the nest to know if she has any eggs but it’s fun just knowing she’s there. 

Our feeder is about ten feet from her nest.  I will be very diligent in keeping it filled with fresh food.
