They're back!

The hummingbirds have made another nest in our avocado tree! Of course, I can't tell if this is another couple, but we're happy to have another nest in the backyard. I had noticed that the hummingbird feeder was becoming empty very quickly...just like it did the last time the hummingbirds were sitting on their eggs.

The last nest was only about 5 feet off the ground...I could touch it if I wanted to, and I think that made the parents nervous. This nest is 15 feet off the ground, which may be why the hummingbirds aren't buzzing us when we come to observe. It's such perfect timing for the birds to nest while Doris is here...she's enjoying watching them.
