Birds Of A Feather (sort of)

Last post and photos till I return from Costa Rica. I couldn’t leave without seeing the baby hummingbirds, so I stopped by the church this morning.

Here is the nest. When you look at the birds, remember that the two of them together are smaller than a quarter in size. If you have some change in your pocket, look at a 25 cent piece and consider the size.

Here is a close-up. Amazing!

  5. Amazing photos but even more so to have actually found the nest. Here in northern British Columbia, the only chance of discovering a nest is this time of year, when all the leaves are gone and everything is frosted. Thanks for sharing!
