the Rufus hummingbirds have been very busy this spring

there has been a pair at my feeder on a regular basis and know I know why

they have a nest in the Japanese plum-tree, outside the back door, close to the feeder. It is so well camouflaged, the outside covered in lichen, that it is difficult to see even when you know where to look. They are sitting on it constantly. Are we going to have babies?
