These tiny little bitty hummingbirds hatched directly over my barbecue one season.  I couldn’t bring myself to remove them so there was no use of the barbecue so it sat there, idle.. cold and neglected for at least several months.

It was such a pleasure to watch momma bird bring them their meals and feed them several times a day.  We were able to watch from right inside my home from a big kitchen window.  These pictures were taken outside with me perched on a chair and I was surprised that the mom let me get so close without freaking out.
