In Which a Mossy Nest Enthralls Us

This little hummingbird mama built her nest this past weekend right next to the sidewalk at work. My coworker used his Brunton compass to see into the nest, in which there are 2 eggs. If all goes well, I think they'll hatch in another 2 weeks or so. We're not sure what kind of hummingbird she is. I brought in my hummingbird feeder from home to augment the garden next door, where she's probably feeding. I am amazed that she is completely unfazed by the human traffic on the sidewalk just two feet from her nest. Granted, we're a small company, but most of us are stopping every time we pass to see how everything is proceeding and to be amazed by her tiny power and beauty.
