Vireo's and Hummer nest

The three commonest vireo species you can see around the hotel grounds are the endemic Yucatan, White-eyed and Mangrove all fairly numerous and vocal.




Found this Hummingbird (cinnamon) nest whilst trying to photograph an Osprey along the beach, it was nesting in the smallest bracken type bush closest to the sea!

I went back another day and patiently waited for the bird to go off to feed before grabbing a shot off the two smallest chick's in the world, No bigger than a thumb nail each! Amazing.
