Well as some of you may know, I have been watching a humming bird family, now that the hummer kids have left the next I decided to check out the nest.
It is really sticky, like cotton candy sticky. I was like, so does she spit on it..you know flower nectar, humming bird feeder juice???
No, I learned that humming birds use spider webs to hold their nest together!
That explains why I always see them darting up under the fish pond cover...
|see the spider webs on the rafters?|
I always thought they were stealing bugs...yes they eat bugs, I looked that up a few years ago when I noticed them up there poking at the webs...so nope, not a snack bar, more like a humming bird home depot...
the things you learn!
