In an ornithologist-couple’s garden

John and Viola Lentink discover a nest

Dutch couple John and Viola Lentink have spent almost nine years at the missionary hospital Diospi Suyana.  The ultra-sound specialist and the biologist have discovered a wonder of nature just outside their living room window: a female hummingbird has made its nest on a cactus and one chick has hatched already.

Many hummingbirds live in Curahuasi.  Peru is the world’s country with the most number of different bird species.

The female hummingbird sitting on the cactus…
… and breeding – not to be disturbed.
