Hummingbird nest, still there

Today I took Jack to see the hummingbird nest!  We first tried to walk around the pond and see lots of herons, but that didn't work out because of a loud event happening, having to do with Puerto Rico.  We didn't see much until we finally got to the hummingbird nest, but this little beauty was worth the walk!  :-)

Hummingbird nest!

So last night after the algorithms lecture are the World Science Festival, Jack and I looped through the ramble before heading home.  There was a gathering on the bridge at the upper lobe where I gathered someone had found a hummingbird nest!  I didn't have binoculars with me, or my camera, but I paid close attention to the spot and the directions to find the nest.

I went back today with binoculars and a camera, and sure enough, there it was!  There was nothing else to be seen except a black-crowned night heron.  Well worth the trip!  :-)
