Default Hummngbird Nesting

Watched her build her nest right outside my window for a week, and she now seems to have laid her eggs.

That's a special picture. Thanks for letting us enjoy it too. I love me some hummingbirds but i've never gotten to see one nesting.

Thanks Steve, I just tried posting some images of her building the nest, but the Web is not letting me today for some reason. The chicks should arrive in another week to 10 days.
