Hidden on a branch
on a tree in our backyard
lays a miniature birds nest
(about the size of a tic tac)
and one mommy hummingbird
It's so exciting.
Like a little jewel or hidden treasure in our backyard.
Every day we go outside to see if the mommy is in her nest
and to look at the baby eggs.
And to praise God for making such beautiful things.
We can't wait until the eggs hatch
and two itty bitty baby hummingbirds emerge.
But until then we wait.
Like a family waiting to meet their new arrival.
Oh the excitement and anticipation!
And in the meantime we went out a bought a hummingbird feeder so Mommy hummingbird could have a quick little snack while she takes care of the little ones.
