There are a bunch of hummingbiord feeders in my apartment complex. And thus, there are a lot of hummingbirds.
Earlier in the spring, I saw a nest just outside my front door in a tree. I live on the second floor, so as I walk out onto my porch, I am eye level with a nest that is about 15′ away. I knew it would come in handy…
I saw the female sitting in ther nest a LOT about a month ago. about a week ago I heard chirping, but no mother. Today…I saw 2 feathered babies, probably only a few weeks from fledging and taking off on their own. So I snapped a couple pictures…
Two adorable little baby hummingbirds. I’ve no idea what kind they are, but I got individual photos of the parents earlier in the spring feeding from a neighbor’s feeder:
I saw the above 2 birds at the nest site earlier in the spring. While I didn’t actually observe the mating process, I did observe what I assume to be a courting ritual in and around the nest site, and I observed the female sitting in the nest, presumable on eggs, several times. If anyone can positively ID the species, I would greatly appreciate it!
Thanks for looking!!
