More great photos from Pam Wittenberg in Santa Rosa, California, today. Of these, she says, “I was down near the creek in our backyard pulling dead twigs and branches down when I got divebombed by an angry hummingbird. Her nest was so well hidden I didn’t realize I was in danger of damaging it. Mom’s camouflage technique on the nest using lichens, moss and spiderwebs is amazing, isn’t it? She quickly went back to sit on her eggs, keeping an eye on me all the while. Her babies have since hatched so she visits our feeders even more now. Can’t wait to watch them grow up.” **Be sure to click on all of the photos on the left! Thanks, Pam!
