The nest in this photo does not belong to this hummingbird. It is a craft nest and the eggs in it are the ones I made out of clay. You can learn how to make these eggs by clicking HERE. This picture is what I called a "staged" photo. I planted flowers that I knew the hummingbirds loved and stuck twigs in around them. They are in a planter outside my window and there is also a feeder nearby. Hummingbirds love resting on twigs so once they got accustomed to their area I glued the nest onto the twig with my glue gun.
Taa Daah~ Fun photo.
By the way...The hummingbird featured in the above photo is the smallest of all the hummers that visit me. She is small but brave-She won't be bullied around by the "king" hummingbird of this feeder. She just waits patiently for him to leave then she feeds-The king has tried to chase her off like he does all the other hummers but she won't run from him-She'll just sit there, which is no fun for him so he moves on to find someone that will run! This brave little hummingbird has been showing up to my feeder for the last 3 years and comes to visit at the start of every August and stays around for at least 3 months.
