I spied a Humming Bird nest

Over the weekend, we spent some time weeding over at Butterfly Park with our little Daisy Scouts. They lasted about 30 minutes and took off and explored the park. I was delighted when I remembered that just above where we were picnicing, under an old ecalyptus tree, a little Hummingbird had built her nest. I gathered the girls and with a stick pointed out the very small nest. Much to our surprise, two Hummingbirds were in there. I'm guessing that we saw the mom and dad birds. The nest is no more the 2 1/2 inches across. I'm not sure how someone even saw it in the big tree.
