March News

We have spotted three Anna’s hummingbird nests on site this year! It is such a treat to watch them from a respectful distance. You can see how the female built the little cup nest from plant material and spiderwebs, which are key for keeping the nest together and attached to the tree limb but also allow the nest itself to expand as the baby hummingbirds hatch and grow! They use lichen as a final touch to camouflage the nest; Alexa discovered one of them when she saw a female hummingbird hovering with lichen in its beak.

We certainly enjoy how the nursery and garden have created a little bird refuge; next time you visit take a moment to enjoy the sounds and sights of all the birds!.
