On Nov. 29 I was in town with my family, waiting in the car for my parents and younger brother to come back from the local bakery. While I was waiting for them, parked near a house with a garden, I watched a bullfinch singing on a branch, and just as they were returning, a female Antillean crested hummingbird flew by and sat on her nest. I had never seen a hummingbird nest before, so we asked the home owner if we could look and take some pictures of it.
I am very unhappy with this picture, it was in the shade and my camera should have been able to take a good photo,
Unfortunately there were no eggs in the nest yet; I was wondering as I saw it, how can the female fit in here?! You can see the threads she is using to line the nest.
My dad’s hand near the nest to show how small it is, my dad had never seen a hummingbird’s nest before either,
