Default Hummer building her nest-now posted!!

Apparently the system didn't like the naming convention of my images earlier.....anyway, it seems to be working now!

These are some poor IQ images (they were shot through my window glass so I don't spook her away) of our hummer building her nest. She spent about a week building it and now she is sitting on her eggs. I posted that image earlier in another thread.


#1 She collected soft material and spider webs.




#2 She tucked everything meticulously.




#3 She also used her long tongue to glue the material in.




#4 Finally she used her whole body to form the nest.
