Hummingbird Babies

(YouTube link)

From eggs til the time they leave the nest. I am astounded to think of how many trips the tiny mother bird must've made to feed two growing babies! -via Ursi’s Blog

Thank you so much. That was great the way you numbered the days. We have a nest outside with 2 babies and my husband was wanting to know how soon they fly. They are so big we can see them outside the nest. Your video was very informative. Once again thank you for sharing.

At our old house, we had a hummingbird nest right outside of our window. That summer, we watched the momma bird feed her two babies every day.

Then one day, there was only one chick in the nest! I guessed one fell down (or maybe it was pushed out?)

Anyways, the remaining chick got twice the food ration and grew up to be quite chubby, so we named it so. Chubby flew around and had children of his own the next summer (or was it the summer afterwards). We named the baby Son of Chubby.

My husband is a native aussie who has never seen a hummingbird in real life. I had him convinced for a while that you had to be careful around hummingbirds because they will poke you with their long sharp beaks.
