This is a link to one of her spottings. She has many hummingbird spottings.
There was another spotting by one spotter. It was exceptional. However i do not remember the spotters name, She had an extraordinary video too.
How frustrating that can be! When you cannot locate the spotting or the spotter!!

I'll definitely check on it each time I go there! I don't believe I've seen her spottings. Can you send me the link to her page?

Keep an eye on it Cindy. A Hummingbird might raise its family here. Have you seen Melanie Hoffmans spottings?

It really was. This is my first one seen in the open since the bush was deciduous. They're usually so hidden behind leaves.

Oh gosh, I haven't even looked it up yet to see how they're made. Wow!

So cute! It's amazing to think they are able to build this out of spiders webs & lichen!
