Photo - Baby Hummingbirds
4 weeks ago I told you about the hummingbird
that made a nest in one of my roses that I had not yet
prunned. 2 weeks ago the egg hatched and I saw
little lump of fur in the nest. Last week a huge storm
roared into San Diego with tremendous rain and hail.
My wife, oldest son and I rigged a canopy over the nest
to protect the newborn babies. Today I finally
saw mommy leave the nest long enough to take a photo
and low and behold she had twins! Some how the
other egg must have hidden when I looked in the nest.
They still have their eyes closed and mommy rushes
back and forth to feed them. Here is the photo
of the nest and mommy from a few weeks ago.
