The nest!

Yesterday, as we were removing an 18+ foot tall Japanese Maple tree in our courtyard, we found this...

This hummingbird nest is a little tiny work of art, isn't it? How do they build such a beautiful and tiny nest and how does it hold two babies?

Other than taking out the tree, it was a quiet day for us. A quiet and relaxing Labor Day. I'm still finding it difficult to believe that it's September already.

Take care,

That is so cool!

Wow! Had you any idea it was there?

And how on earth do you move an 18ft. tree?

How beautiful! We found what we think is a hummingbird nest on the weekend too. I've found many but never the hummingbird.
