My hummingbird chicks have fledged!
I have so enjoyed watching the Costas Hummingbird build her nest, sit on the nest, hatch and feed her two chicks, and finally, to see them take their shaky first flight from the nest. The nest was right outside my kitchen nook window and I spent a lot of time in the last 6 weeks watching hummingbirds. The video shows them testing out their wings, and almost falling out of the nest!

The sourdough starter that I was making from scratch as an experiment, finally, after 22 days, decided to wake up and start to rise!
I couldn't believe how gorgeous the resulting bread was! And, very tasty!!
