RARE 4 Hummingbird eggs in Nest

This is a very rare and unusual view of 4 eggs all in one hummingbird’s nest located in Southern California.  It  is rare to find three eggs in a nest when usually there are only two. The fourth egg arrived on April 1st, 2012.It is not known yet, if all four are fertile.  New postings will follow as incubation progresses.Humminbirds are known to have, again not average, two separate nests each occupied with babies.  Each nest with eggs hatching a week or so apart  from each other.  The female will feed all four babies. I have posted a slide show on YouTube,Four Hummingbird Eggs in Nest”
