Hummingbird Feeder

Leave a comment

FullSizeRender (8)Today’s installment of the hatchlings shows both little beaks perked up and waiting for Mom.  I noticed yesterday that she has enlarged the nest since they were hatched and still diligently sits on them.  While I sat on the deck, she kept buzzing around but wouldn’t feed them, and they, hearing her buzzing wings, would bounce in the little nest (which is actually no bigger than a golf ball).  After 30 minutes, I took their photo and went indoors.  The larger one, on the right, almost has an opened eye, which seems early to me.  I’m used to seeing all those helpless baby African Greys, Cockatoos, and Macaws that are just pathetic for weeks and weeks.  These little hummingbirds are progressing quickly, having just been born 4-5 days ago.  Life is good (mostly)!  Soli Deo Gloria!
