Should I get excited?

We planted this dwarf orange tree about 4 1/2 years ago. Every year it has had flowers but not borne any fruit. We will have fruit this year!! Woohoo! It looks as though we may have a dozen oranges, haha.
A small bird decided she liked my yard and has made a nest in one of our climbing plants. I never remember the name of things. She is a small bird sort of between a hummer and a wren. Probably a finch of some sort but the shape seems wrong. She is gray, white, and black. I think there is a baby in the nest. When I got close she flew off but I decided not to trespass further and stepped back.

The bobcat has not made a return visit to our courtyard. I am sort of disappointed.
