P1030372We have this hanging plant out back. if you notice the dark area in the lower left of the plant, it is a small bird nest. It is probably no larger than two inches inside. It looks very fragile.

We watched two birds build it over two days. Then there were two eggs. I didn’t get a photo of the eggs.

When the mother bird was in the nest, she was almost hidden. Yesterday, I decide to go take some photos since we had seen the mother bird feeding the young ones.

Then she flew out to watch from a more remote point.
