Bird's Nest Update

I finally got a chance to take a picture of mommy hummingbird sitting on top of the nest I posted about a short while ago. It's funny, I can always hear when she comes to feed the babies. Hummingbirds make such a distinctive sound because of the fast fluttering of their wings. Because the nest is just outside my greenhouse window I can hear her through the open window.

I've tried to get pictures before but she's always rushed off the minute she even saw me. Yesterday she actually sat still for quite a while but still didn't let me get too close before she took off. So, since she took off I tried to get another shot inside the nest and I haven't got a clue what I'm looking at. I didn't see the baby birds heads but did see what looked like feathers. Maybe you can tell what this is. I'm hoping because she was sitting on the nest that they were just down really low in the nest.

I'll just have to take another look later today and see....
