Ruby-throated Hummingbird Nest 001
I was fortunate to be able to photograph a hummingbird nest, as they are one of the hardest nests to find. They are so small and well camouflaged.
The nest, built by the female, is a small little cup of grasses, spider webs and plant fibers lined with plant down. She fastens lichens to the nest and branch blending the nest into its surroundings to disguise it. Even when the nest location is known it is very difficult to find again. A friend of mine found this one.
