    Spring of 2016 was our first year in this house. 2 hummers built their nest in the strut of our kitchen window shade. It was glorious as we set up the camera on a tripod on the kitchen sink so it looked directly into the nest. We took videos. The best was a few days before the 2 chicks finally left. They had been moving around in the next (which bulged as they tried to squirm past one another) they one morning mom stood on the edge, raised her beak and throat and sang. Chicks did likewise and for 3 hours, I swear she taught them to sing proper hummer tunes.

    I never felt so welcomed... well maybe. The previous house had welcomed me in the second month when I went out on the new deck to find a newborn fawn had been left 5 feet from the ramp to wait out the day and gather strength. Mom collected it before first light of the following morning. There was some rain that afternoon and I watched the fawn lick drops from its fur, but it stayed in its spot, as it was programmed to do. I've been so blessed. Nature seems to know I cannot go out much to hunt for such sights, and she deposits them in my lap. sort of.
    Oh, what a privilege to have seen those things! Thank you so much - I'll carry those visuals with me.

            Sadly the hummingbird eggs did not hatch...non-viable eggs. The eggs were about the size of a regular jelly bean (not a Jelly Belly).

                Our nest was about 3 inches across, and 4 deep. The weird part was it was flexible and when the chicks manouvered around one another the thing spread and moved around.
