Feathered Friday, Week TWO



Kitties!


Earlier this week Mommy got a short video of Mrs. Hummerbird sitting on her nest!
It was a very windy day, and as you know her cinematography is amateurish stinky at best, so it's not the greatest...but you can see the Missus in the center of the screen to start (if you look hard) and the eggs in the nest at the end.
See it on YouTube HERE


And then, just yesterday, there was THIS!!!

A baby chick!
And the other egg looks like the second chick hatching out; see the ring around the shell?
Mommy says the baby was bobbing his head around, and it's SO ugly it's adorable.

The hummer feeder is outside the window of Daddy's office, so when he see the Missus drinking he shouts and Mommy runs out with her phone to get a quick photo--that way she doesn't scare Mrs. Hummer off her nest any more.  Mommy will get more photos this week and hopefully we'll have another update next Friday...we are all SO excited!


Happy Friday!

ya cos we'd hate a report from the ER where we are informed that your mum is having a hummerbeak removed from somewhere...er...delicate if you catch our meaning.

Mommy Hummer certainly selected a slight little tree for her nest, and so low to the ground. What a surprise. This is so exciting. We cannot wait for the next installment. Thank you so much for sharing. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
