Check out this photo (click to enlarge) of the 2 baby hummingbirds in this tiny little nest that we found on top of one of the fan lights on our patio ceiling fan. We love hummingbirds and have been wondering why we’ve had some hanging around our patio even though we haven’t had a bird feeder up. This explains it. Now we need to go get a hummingbird feeder so the mom doesn’t have to go so far for food.
We also had another visit from some feathered friends on Friday. I didn’t take this photo, but it’s just to show how cute quail are, for those who’ve never seen them up close. They’re somehow just a bit comical with that plume bouncing up and down on top of their heads as they walk.
Anyway…I can’t tell the whole story because I want Terry to write it, since he’s the one that truly experienced it. Suffice it to say that we had 4 little baby quail running around INSIDE our house with Terry trying to catch them and keep Shredder (the cat) away from them. Imagine that picture! Now tune in later to see the whole story. I’m just sad that I was still in a semi-drugged stupor after my “procedure” on Friday so I didn’t get any pictures of it.
