As I have posted in the past, Mr. M and I feel as though we are simply tenants of a property possessed by a family of hummingbirds. They are truly fearless! Recently, we noticed a lot of hummingbird activity in the area where we have our standard roses planted. The trees line a sidewalk that leads to our front door. The walk runs parallel to the deck in front of our house.
Here’s a photo of where we park our car with the roses next to it:
Recently when we walked down the sidewalk to go retrieve our mail, a hummer flew out of this rose tree:
This prompted a closer look and here is what we discovered right in the center of the rose tree:
Now it has been a couple of weeks and here is a shot of the two healthy babies. No wonder they think they own to place! Generation after generation are hatched and remain to live here.
They won’t be in the nest much longer but have been fun to watch from close up! The hummers are so brave we can even cut roses from the bush without causing any problems.
