Gamboa Garden

Yesterday we enjoyed a beautiful Sunday afternoon watching the hummingbirds and other wildlife just outside our doorstep.  A pair of Common Tody-Flycatchers (Todirostrum cinereum) have built a nest in the arbor outside the front door, and every day I've been watching these tiny birds tending to the nest.  Hoping for fledglings soon!

Two freshly-filled hummingbird feeders attracted dozens of hummingbirds, including White-necked Jacobins, Rufous-tailed Hummingbirds, Violet-bellied Hummingbirds, Blue-chested Hummingbirds and a beautiful male Violet-crowned Woodnymph.
