    Hummers are beautiful but baby birds are really ugly. But so ugly they are cute.

    Wow Eileen, that's amazing! I read somewhere once that a hummingbird nest is the size of a walnut. I was thinking about that when I was looking at the first pictures after they hatched, tiny little naked things. Thanks for the link.
