Lemon Tree Hummingbird
Spring hasn't quite reached Ocean Beach, but green shoots are thick on every lawn -- and a close look at neighborhood nature reveals plenty of other signs that the next season is drawing near.
In this episode of OB in HD, our Canon HV-30 catches sight of a hummingbird that has built a nest in a lemon tree and appears to be roosting on an egg or eggs. The lemon tree is in the backyard of Neighbor John, who is committed to protecting the hummingbird and its nest from area predators, including the crows that often caw from overhead - and Sophia, the family cat.
The track in the background is the neat little down-tempo number "Hum" from Dub Tractor.
