hummingbird nest

Hummingbird nest precariously perched in a wind chime.

When Don was barbecuing our dinner tonight he noticed something perched precariously atop the wind chime that hangs over our back patio – a tiny little bird’s nest. While I am not expert, I’m fairly certain it’s a hummingbird nest, considering its size 

I snapped a few pictures, but it was impossible to see into the nest without finding a ladder, and I didn’t want to disrupt the wind chime, should the nest be occupied.

The odd angle of the top-right image is the fault of the photographer (me). The wind chime wasn’t tilted.

Last night it was pretty windy in Havasu, so if the nest was/is occupied, it must have been a rough evening for the poor little mama. Happy to report I haven’t noticed any tiny eggs – or eggshells on the patio.

I’ll be keeping an eye on the wind chime to see if the nester returns.
