Here's the view out our dining room window. Isn't it beautiful! This tiny momma hummingbird has chosen our lemon tree for her nest. It's amazing how many hours she spends sitting on her precious eggs.

She sits...
And sits...

Look at these itty, bitty eggs. Two of them to be exact.
Did you know...
A humming bird is 3.3" and can fly 25-30 mph. They are the only birds that can fly forward and backward as well as upside down. A humming bird nest is about 1.5" in diameter and the eggs are about the size of a pea or small jelly bean. Isn't Mother Nature AMAZING!
