a hummingbird nest in a mystery sakura?

Hi folks! This bird nest is super super tiny! Is it a hummingbird nest? I put up a feeder in my yard,... I think maybe I should put up another one, too! I loooove hummingbirds. I'll plant some more hummingbird friendly plants when I get some time, too.

This is my little (planted in Dec) sakura tree. I'm not sure what type it is... at the nursery they told me it it was a double-pink... but it's blooming single white. But sometimes people say it doesn't bloom what it is the first year. I don't really mind either way, I like both types.

I don't know enough to say, but since it's "stuck" to the branch, and hummingbirds use spiderwebbing in their nests (for stickiness?) it might be a hummingbird nest...

At any rate, it's beautiful.
