*****LOOKING FOR THE MOTHER GOOSE STORY? SCROLL DOWN A BIT. IT’S JUST BELOW THIS LITTLE TALE. /GARY *****

Gary:
The last few years an Anna’s hummer I call Iki has nested on our back porch. She has used both vines and our clothes line for her nest location. During the winter, last year’s nest ended up hanging upside down on the line. She returned this spring, perhaps to reuse it, and decided it now needed some modification. When I looked out today, she was adding material to what is now a new nest, built on the bottom of the old one. I guess she really likes this location!

WOW! This is the first 2-story, double-decker hummingbird nest I’ve ever seen! Pretty amazing. /Gary
