Real hummingbird sets up nest on hummingbird wind chime

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CBS 8) - An El Cajon woman was amazed at what she was seeing when she was having coffee in her backyard.

"I went and got my glasses and thought, I can't even believe it, there's a nest," Liz Butler said.

And it wasn't just any nest, it was a hummingbird nest built right on top of a mosaic hummingbird wind chime.

Butler says the bird has been in its new home for two days now and gets nectar from the flowers in her backyard instead of her feeders.

Even though the hummingbird is female, Butler calls her "Jack" after her late husband.
