Hummingbird Hatchlings

Leave a comment



The hummingbirds hatched on Friday and Saturday.  Apparently, the mother quickly removes the broken shells from the nest.  You can see in the first photo, with the unhatched egg, that a piece of shell remains.  In today’s photo, there is no shell, and while they have more feathers, their heads remain unidentifiable from their tails.  Hatchlings always have faces that only a mother could love.  This mother still sits on the nest, although the temperatures have been in the 90s for the past two days, soaring to 97 today.  Can’t wait to see their little faces!

One out, one to go.
