birth of hummingbirds photo slide showhu

These photos are wonderful. My friends in nearby Wyandotte county, KS (near Kansas City), have seen them at their feeders. However the hummies have not come to my feeder. They usually return August 22 on the dot the last couple of years so I am hopeful that will return so I can see them here. But there photos are wonderful. Thanks


Keep in mind the egg is smaller than a tic tac and a quarter fits the opening of the nest!
This is truly amazing.

Be sure to click on NEXT PAGE at the bottom of each page; there are 5 pages in all. A lady found a hummingbird nest and got pictures all the way from the egg to leaving the nest.

It took 24 days from birth to flight. Because you'll probably never in your lifetime see this again, enjoy; and please share.
