Mother hummingbird sitting on her eggs

Diligent Mama Hummingbird

On a busy city street, with the rush of traffic all around, above the heads of passersby, sits this tiny nest and a devoted mama hummingbird. Her location is being kept hushed so that visitors do not swarm the tree, but for those of us "in the know," it is a rare treat indeed to look up and see her. She has been there for weeks, evidently, keeping those eggs warm and safe. Wonder what she thinks about all day? Surely not taxes or her Facebook page!
