Surprise House Guest

We discovered this hummingbird nest earlier this week. She sits on her 2 eggs right outside our window, hence the glare in the photo.

Yesterday, one egg hatched and then the other. The little birds are barely visible. 

The mother periodically leaves the nest to feed. We have observed her feeding them just once. It's so amazing and fun to watch.

Could she have picked a better place for you to view them? What special guests these are!
