And then...there were Two!







Kitties!

It's Week Three of the Baby Hummer Story!


As you can see, the nestlings have gotten a lot bigger, and they have some pinfeathers already.   Baby #2 hatched out the day after the first one, so they are nine and ten days old now.  They don't seem to peep at all, but as you can see they sure can poop!  Missus Hummer has been busy busy busy feeding her babies, she's at the feeder elebenty billion times a day, filling up, plus our Salvia is in bloom and she loves the nectar from those flowers.  A couple readers have asked what type of hummers these are and Mommy is pretty sure they are Anna's Hummingbirds, but since the females are rather drab it's hard to tell for sure; and like Mommy wrote a pal the males (easier to identify) don't stick around, those faithless wretches, MOL.

Stay tuned for next Feathered Friday!

Happy Friday!

    Äiti thinks this is wonderful and an ornithological miracle. Naturally we concur but with added interest.

  4. So beautiful seeing baby hummingbirds. We can't wait to see when they're out of their nest, moving about, and enjoying your flowers like the rest of them.

  7. What fun having them there where you can watch them grow! We didn't know that male hummingbirds don't stick around like some other birds do. Poor, single hummingbird Mom! We are glad she has your feeder nearby so she doesn't have to forage too far.

  14. Wow, we never realized that baby hummers were such prolific poopers! We allus figured that sugar was such a pure food that there wouldnt be much in the way of "excess".

    We agree with Barb, it always seems to be about the poop.
