Nesting hummingbird

Steve Johnson


Is it rare to see a nesting hummingbird? This was taken in our backyard. We have lots of hummingbirds around here but I have never seen one in a nest, probably with eggs or about to be. How small is a baby hummingbird? How small are the eggs? If she stays here, perhaps I can answer these questions. If I get any closer with my IPad camera, she flies away.  We'll see how this develops over the next few weeks.

Arizona nature is interesting; very different from New England where I grew up.
