In the Nick of Time

Look at the left rim of the nest; you should see a beak. Then look at the top right-hand side of the nest to see the other beak.

Sunday Richie came in from the backyard all excited. "We've got a hummingbird nest!" I was comfortable, didn't feel like trudging down the back stairs and out into the yard. Yesterday I did go and sure enough -- there they were.

This morning, he came back in after changing litter boxes and said, "They're gone -- I checked around on the ground, but they weren't there." None of the neighborhood cats (or our own) got them as the nest was well hidden. At cat eye level, they could not have seen it.
