Mother hummingbird with chicks

A hummingbird built a nest outside our dining room window and the nest was disturbed such that one chick was lost. I cut the bottom off a water bottle, secured it to the palm frond, and placed the nest and remaining chick inside. The chick survived and was able to leave the nest.
