I thought that the winds the past couple of weeks packed a bunch of crud into one of our landscaping trees until I got a better look on Sunday. It looks like this little girl (a hummingbird) took a bunch of cottonwood fluff to make her nest...and NOW there's an egg! It has been built right next to where my SU parks his car (about 3 ft away from his driver's door), and while his car is very quiet, I worry that she will get startled by a door shutting or whatnot and abandon ship ...
Here she is this afternoon:
I just love hummingbirds. My SU and I actually had a clear glass wedding cake topper that featured 2 hummingbirds and dogwood flowers.

I hope she doesn't move! Tell him to park down the road lol!

WOW !! You even got a pic of her ON the nest ! How cool !!! Yeah, tell SU to park elsewhere ! You will have to watch that egg and see when it hatches. Can you imagine how tiny a baby hummingbird is ?
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
That is so awesome. I agree Hubby can park somewhere else. This little girl takes priority.

Thanks for sharing the pictures; I have never seen a hummingbird nest let alone the momma bird in the nest.
Thanks for sharing your pics. That is sooo cool. Tell him everyone agrees that he has lost his parking spot until baby comes!
*squeals* Oh my! I've always wanted to find a hummingbird nest!
