This is a nest of humming birds that we found in the orchard this summer. The humming birds nest in the orchard all of the time but the nests are so small that they are hard to find.
We have a nest on display in the market if you would like to see what one looks like.
The nests are neat in the way they work. The nest actually grows or expands with the baby birds, they are very elastic. Then when the small humming birds fly away the adults come back and destroy the nest, that is why the nests are so rare. Photo by Jon Reed.
