Back in 2014 we got to watch a hummingbird build her nest and lay her eggs.
What an experience!
It was the beginning of our flock. Are they even called a flock when there is a group of them? Nope they are called a charm, how charming!
FYI; Parrots, Pigeons, and Swifts are flocks. Just like a gaggle of geese while on the water. While in flight they are called skein, and when in they are in a 'V' formation, they are called a wedge. I found this information here.
So today when I found a page on Facebook called, Bella Hummingbird Webcam, I immediately liked the page. Here is the link to the video in case the video doesn't share correctly.
I wasn't as lucky to have her build her nest in the same location. It wasn't on a branch we could let grow. A sucker had grown over and through our awning that I hadn't cut it back yet. After she started her nest there was now way I could. I tried to keep it safe during the nesting process. During some of our high winds I had to place an old door at the joist before the nest to protect it. With all the trees I have around, she and others must have found better branches, I just haven't found them yet. If I am meant to, then someday I will. Otherwise I will just continue to enjoy them flutter around my yard.
Just another day on Our Journey Through LIFE!
