Old home week Chez Paul

| One year ago — to the day — I noticed a hummingbird nest atop a wind chime on the patio and watched with bated breath until the baby hummers flew a month later.

Yesterday I was sitting on the patio having my lunch when I heard the unmistakable buzzing and looked up to see Ms Hummer land on last year's nest and begin tidying it up. Today's she's sitting there, same position as last year.

Is it the same hummingbird, or just a hummingbird? Frankly, I can't tell. From last year's research I know they may re-use a nest, but this could just be a lazy mother squatting instead of building her own.
