Female Black-chinned Hummingbird – Our Texas Red Sage, Salvia greggii attracts many hummingbirds. We are relatively sure that the females build nests nearby in the neighborhood because their flight paths when arriving and departing our backyard seem to mirror one another. It is impossible to see where they go when they leave because the houses behind ours block our view and our ability to chase after them. From experience, I can say that even knowing the exact tree where a hummingbird nest does no at all guarantee seeing it. In fact, I can remember knowing not only which tree but exactly where on the tree the nest was and I could still not find the nest without several minutes of searching.
