I'll call these birds from Baja California the "unusual suspects" from Florida shooting since they are different from the east coast birds. If you are from the west coast, these may be normal.

Hi Gale,

We were hiking with a group of about 15 people on Isla San Francisco in the Sea of Cortes. Someone spotted the hummingbird fliting around and our guide said to look for a nest. I was the lucky one to spot it heading into a bush and when I saw it sitting on a branch, the bottom half was missing. :confused: Then I saw that it was sitting on the tiny nest. Our guide, a birder from Canada got close enough to see into the nest after the hummingbird flew away and said there were two pea-sized eggs in it.
