This is the story of two baby hummingbirds growing up in my garden. The discovery came as an unexpected surprise which just blew me away. I stumbled upon a mossy wad of lichen and cotton fluffs with spiderweb all over it on one of my geranium hanging plants. It was well camouflaged and looked like a knot on one of the branches. This is why it went unnoticed during my weekly deadheading sessions in the garden. Nothing prepared me for what I was about to see after I climbed on a bench to take a closer look. My jaws dropped when I saw two jelly-bean sized eggs in the tiniest nest I have ever seen. I ran into the house, grabbed my camera and began to chronicle the day-to-day development of the baby hummers from egghood to flight.
