Birds are already building nests, including Anna's Hummingbirds.

Anna's Hummingbirds nest early, as early as January. They build the most exquisite nests out of spider webs, lichen and small twigs. Jenny and John Biglow found this hummingbird nest with two babies inside. Can you spot them?

Siegfried Matull found an occupied nest too. Here's the mother hummingbird sitting on the nest.

And when the female took off for a moment, Siegfried got a photo of her eggs. Look how perfect the nest is.

Thanks to Jenny and Siegfried for allowing me to share their photos with you here.

Yes, I agree! His photos really show the beauty of their nests.
