Default lost and forlorn female hummer

I've noticed this little hummer sitting in the clematis, near the feeder, when she should be on her nest. It appears that she realizes that her eggs weren't going to make it. She looks so lost and forlorn. Luckily I noticed a male is back, so there's hope.
You see, once the female gets the nest built, she chases the males away. The males have no part in the nest building, incubation, or rearing of the baby chicks.

I hope to see her belly get bigger soon. Maybe this time she will build her nst where I can watch.
