Wind: Another Trial for Mother Birds

We are having another windy day and gusts of 25-30mph were blowing the avocado tree branches all over the place this morning. Poor Mama Hummer was spreading her wings and tail over the nest, but she still had to leave to find food. You can barely see one of the babies along the left side of her body if you click on this picture and see the enlarged photo.
This is the first time I've seen her with her back to the house, but I guess she was facing the wind to protect her nestlings.
