This little bird has made a nest in our pineapple guava tree and is sitting very intently in it. I hope this means babies soon!!! The babies arrived roughly 12-14 days after this first post. In the first few days they are black with a pink under belly and very tightly closed eyes. They appear to be completely bald. Mama bird alternates from being at the nest warming them and off finding food for them. In the second picture above I caught mama at the nest right after she was finished feeding them. She appeared to be regurgitating and licking her beak. I will continue to update this post as I can.
Tiny little nest including some of our dog's fur (which should mean it is a warm nest too)
