Baby hummingbird just about ready to leave it's nest.
It managed to stay in the nest through a dust storm the night before.

There were two of them in the nest. I don't know if the other one was ready to leave and flew away or if there just wasn't room.
I usually park my car under these oleander trees for shade but I'm waiting for this guy to leave the nest because, for such small birds, they drop quite a few turds.

You'd think ... considering what they eat ... they'd be dropping sugar cubes! :-) Neat photo!

Thanks Bob, Ganymede and Norm!
It has left the nest now. Maybe I'll see it make a new nest and raise it's own chicks at a later date. : ]
