Looking back I realized it has been almost three weeks since I
put a hummingbird online.
This is Mrs. "A". She was kind enough to build her nest
in my potted Bougainvillea right outside my glass patio door.
The first sign something interesting was happening was the male hummer.
He came one evening and sat near this same spot in the Bougainvillea.
He would come at dusk and leave at dawn. He did this for about a week.
Then just as I was starting to think I could get him used to my presence
with my camera, he disappeared. The next day she showed up with a few twigs. Two days later, the
nest was done. She sat on two eggs for a couple of weeks and they hatched on my birthday.
Until I got my Hound Dog, I couldn't have imagined a better birthday present!
