In between appointments in Santa Rosa today, I caught a glimpse of a hummingbird flying towards a tree and then disappearing. At first I wasn't sure where it went, but then I realized something was going on. The hummingbird wasn't sitting on an exposed branch, but it was hunkered down in a small fork, where it was building a nest!
She kept flying away and returning with different nest materials. Above, perhaps some fluff from a willow? Below, a piece of moss:
What a lovely series of photos! I'm so glad that you were able to take the time to watch this little bird go about her nest-building business. Thank you for sharing this with us.
So cool. It must be tempting to quickly make some more appointments in Santa Rosa. :)
:) That made me laugh. While I was watching this hummingbird, the question did cross my mind re: when I might be returning to that location. And I admit, it's tempting to return to watch her progress...but I could skip the doctor's appointments! (No offense to the doctors, it's just that dealing with medical issues and the healthcare system isn't much fun.)
