The hummingbird mom chatters. When she arrives at the nest; when she leaves the nest. So today while I was at my computer I checked often to see where she was. When I heard her chatter I checked to see if she was on the nest or off.
When she was off I went out, climbed the stepladder and gently, oh so gently tipped the leaf down so I could look into the nest. This is what I saw. Fuzzy bits sticking out of the nest.

This is what I saw after. Teeny tiny beaks!
They don’t look like hummingbirds much. But they will.
Momma hummer came back a few moments later.
