I felt so honoured to have a yellow bellied sun bird build her nest between the cords of the blinds on my deck. She laid two eggs, two babies emerged, and now two fledglings have flown from the nest. The average survival rate in the wild is 20%, so she did very well. I wonder if she'll come back next year?
PS The male did absolutely nothing, aside from his role in fertilization. I'll say nothing more. :)
