Update: Unfortunately, soon after I posted these photos, a predator raided the hummingbird's nest. I have theories on why this happened (cold night, deep torpor, a young mum, crows in the area, etc.), but there's really no way to know for sure. It was a sweet experience to see her constructing and guarding her nest--a first for me. I can only hope that she's OK and will be able to have another nest full of eggs to guard soon.
