If you leave the sound up, you can hear the thrumming of the mama hummingbird's wings when she arrives with another feeding to deliver. So teeny! That nest must be about the diameter of a quarter.

Amazing! Little creatures like this always kinda renew my faith. It's like the jewel-tone dragonflies I see in the pond out back on hot sunny days. It makes me think that if the ecosystem can still support delicate magical little creatures like these, maybe our planet isn't lost yet.
