I introduce you to two new additions to the hummer family that lives in my courtyard. In case you can’t tell, and I can’t, there are two little feathered birds in there. The eggs were the size of jelly beans! I wrote about Hummer the ‘Hun’rieta here.
I was worried because we had a few days of cold, wet weather. I thought perhaps they wouldn’t survive as I didn’t see the parents around during the storms.
But they had already flown the nest.
I am now watching for them in the olive tree across the courtyard where Hunrieta always sits and squawks at me.
I hope I can get a picture of them now that they are a little cuter and much easier to get a photo of… Maybe!
Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
