Random Hummingbird Nest

hummingbird nest While in a backyard in Los Angeles, we were watching Anna's hummingbirds zipping around. One bird landed and one of my colleagues said, "Oh hey, that's a nest." And looking closely, you could see that had a nest on top of a pine cone. Cute!

Also, this was a western scrub-jay visiting a feeder in the yard.  I just liked this photo and wanted to post it.
