nest of Selasphorus rufus
This beautiful nest was about 2 inches across and made of lichen, cobweb, tent caterpillar webs, and ? 2 rufous hummingbirds had fledged from this nest a couple days before I arrived at this place. See other spotting.
I couldn't believe the exposed site of this nest! I have often looked for hummer nests around my bush and even though I have seen the adults go into an area, have never found their nest. This one was at the end of a branch and in view of many passing people. Incredible!
