    That is fantastic! I love Hummingbirds, wish I'd see more of them around here. BUT, I'm leaving in the morning for El Morro, New Mexico, and if it is the same as 2 years ago, I'm expecting to see dozens of 3 different species every day! Yippee. I'll try to get a photo.
    Thanks Gin!

    Matt - if you really want to see spectacular hummingbirds, go to the Chiricahua Mountains in Arizona, where the equatorial hummies come to 'cool off' during the summer months. Some real beauties there! Hope you see a Magnificent!

    Gin that is really great! I cannot believe how small that nest really is. Thank you for sharing it! Glad to hear that "Grackie" is doing well also!

    cheers!
