She's not paying rent...

but she's definitely moved in. This little hummingbird has taken up residence on our back patio...


It wasn't until I took these photos that I noticed she has a tiny little nest up there! If you pull the photo below up big, it looks like a nest...don't you think?


What a strange spot for her to choose. Lucy sits right under her and we bar-b-que and eat dinner out there and she just stays perched right up there. She spends hours sitting there, so I'm thinking there must be an egg in the nest.

I'm at home today and she's up there right now and I bet she'll be there most of the day. Hoping to see a baby hummingbird soon.
