Our short hummingbird adventure…

This was so sad.  In mid-March we discovered a hummingbird nest in our Oleander tree right next to where the gas grill sits.  It was fun to watch the mother bird flying and even sitting on the nest.  Unfortunately for the bird we had a very hard wind storm late in March and it blew down the nest and the eggs.  We found one of the eggs in one of my plant containers close under the tree, several days later.  The nest is extremely small, we were looking forward to seeing the 2 little birds grow… maybe next time.
