Local Wildlife



The other day while filming Hummingbirds outside of the Borges residence I couldn't help but notice that one Hummingbird in particular was becoming quite agitated with me... It kept diving by my head from up above me in the tree making that fly by whirring sound...That's when I noticed the nest right above my head in the tree...A Hummingbirds nest is not like other birds nests it is more of a hanging pouch ...Usually made from strings or very fine fibers woven into a kind of swinging pocket hammock designed to keep their feather light offspring inside and safe from blowing away in a storm...Pictured above is the very territorial little bird and its carefully constructed nest ...
