I was lucky enough to come upon a hummingbird nest this spring. I was able to follow the cycle from the mother sitting on her nest up until the little bird flew the nest. It was amazing as I have never seen a hummingbird nest let alone watch this amazing mother bird and her little one.

Location: San Ramon, Bishop Ranch Regional Open Space.
