JANUARY 14 I noticed a hummer nesting in our back yard, not in the nest Hummy and Hummus hatched in (see the Hummy series, His Scribe, 6-14 to 7-6-10) but in the vacant Allen's nest in the tree next to theirs. I think this is Hummus, the second generation. We had heard that hummers recycle nests. Hummus refurbished this thumbprint-sized one, added a second story. (It's twice as tall as before.)
|I believe this is Hummus, one of the Anna's twins who hatched last June.|
JANUARY 27 I could see a bit of broken shell, then caught the flap of a tiny brown wing. When Hummus flew back to her nest, two tiny golden "V"s popped up to greet her. I watch her insert her beak into each one twice. When the beaks withdrew, she settled down on top of them.
|Every twenty minutes this miracle repeats.|
JANUARY 30 Today I took these pictures. Jerry named this pair Humberto and Humberta.
