One tiny egg for hummingbird-kind!

This report from Phil Bentley about the return of the hummingbirds to his yard (near Sabino Canyon). Phil writes:

This is the third year hummingbirds have built a nest almost on the same branch of our little lemon tree. The first picture was yesterday (3/20/2015) when I first noticed the nest and the second picture is this morning (3/21/2015) with one egg in it. That is a standard US stamp with the appropriate image next to it to show the scale.

Thanks, Phil! And all the best to the new parents for a successful hatching, feeding, and fledging!
