Hummer Nest

There must be a Ruby-throated Hummingbird nest near the office at work, as this morning as I came in I saw a female fly down to the foundation to pick spider webs--which they use as nesting material--from the basement window wells. Very cool to see these tiny birds doing their thing.

That's precisely why I never clean around the windows and doors of our house: the Anna's and the Costa's Hummingbirds do it for us. Now if only I could find a bird that nested INSIDE, I'd never have to do any cleaning at all!

Hi, Rob

I managed to get a picture of a spiderweb-bedecked female Black-chinned Hummer in Cave Creek Canyon AZ this spring.
