Though only 1/2 the size of a golf ball, a Hummingbird nest may be tiny but it is oh so cleverly constructed. (They use spider webs, moss and a variety of plant materials to weave these tiny structures into rearing headquarters for their incredibly small offspring) ) Today I observed these tiny Anna's Hummingbirds once again gathering fuzz from local cattails to put into their nests. I do wish I could find one and watch the building procedure, but alas, far too many hiding spots. Perhaps one day, but for now I will be content to capture their images in more obvious places!
Summer 2023.. I just received notice that my blog has been awarded a distinction of being one of the top 10 photography blogs in Canada.
