Female Ruby-throated Hummingbird
Photographer: helen anderson
Location: Nelson Dewey State Park, Cassville Wisconsin
A Ranger pointed out the location of this hummingbird nest, about the size of half a walnut, in Nelson Dewey State Park near Cassville WI. Once the eggs hatched, the mother bird added a dense collar of moss to increase the security of the little hatchlings. Three fledglings left the nest to live in the State Park overlooking the Mississippi River.
