Messinger, Teresa: UC Master Gardener Vol.
Description In April of 2008 we watched a hummingbird build a nest in a Camellia bush outside our front door. What initially caught my eye was the strange materials being assembled daily into what gradually resembled a tiny nest. I cautiously took digital photos almost daily of the daily progression from nest building through egg hatching and chick development. What a wondrous work of nature! A bittersweet end to this story is we had to leave for a Mexican cruise vacation and had to miss the babies' fly the nest.
