The western Oregon nesting season has begun. While taking Andie for a walk, I noticed an Anna's hummingbird picking lichens from the trunk of an oak tree.
I froze and watched her fly above my head and land on her nest. She worked the material into the nest and stayed on.
She was still on the nest when I returned to take a quick picture (she's in the center of the photo), so she must be incubating her eggs.
Her nest is well concealed by remaining on the oak leaves. It amazes me that such a small bird nests in the winter, when most of the nesting birds are large bodies-species such as great horned bald eagles, and ravens. I hope the weather will be easy on her and her young.
