Interesting habitat Amber

There was also a deer in the lilly pads and Canadian Geese. Use to be a pair of swans and there is usually an eagle or two at the lake also.

Day 8 of the baby hummingbirds. Think they were tired today after yesterdays' activities as they were asleep every time I checked on them. Still amazing how they can still fit in the tiny nest!
