Update on my little visitor

A little while ago I wrote a blog about the hummingbird that was hanging around my front door. Today, the wind was really blowing so I went to the front door to look out and I see this poor little bird fighting the wind, trying to get to my front door. WTH?

Then I see her land- on what I thought was a bees nest on the camera by my front door. Turns out it was her little nest.

I was able to get my phone up there and take a picture inside the nest and this is what I found.

Babies! She has babies! I wish I could see them better but Momma was getting a little ticked off and her beak is kinda long and pointy so I thought I should leave them alone.

Now, I feel even more blessed. She feels safe enough to have her babies right by my front door. Now my house has a name, it will forever be the Hummingbird house. I'm going to make a sign.


  1. I am soooo jealous! I love those birds and have only seen a few at my house. And we ALL feel safe at your house:)

  2. That is too wonderful for words. I'm jealous. I really really am.

  3. We are moving soon. One of the things I have been thinking about for the new house is a bird feeder. More precisely, a vulture feeder. You know, buzzards. I wonder if they would nest near the house?

    Not as cool as hummingbirds, but we like vultures.


Say it, you know you wanna!
