Hummer update: First hatch this morning

  1. D’OH! I just sent you an email about it. I have the cam running in the background in another window so I can hear her coming and going and maybe see her feed her new baby.

      1. Ah yes, one of my favorite videos. I’m always amazed that the hummer goes back inside after being free to leave that first day.

        On one of my older posts I mentioned that the first time I saw a hummer in the wild, I thought it was a big bumblebee. I was just a kid, playing in a mountain meadow full of flowers and bees and such and this “giant bumblebee” buzzed by me several times. Really scared me at first. To this day I can’t get over a bird being so tiny. (but better a bird that small than a bee that big!)

  2. Thanks for the heads-up. I forgot to look this morning, but just watched mom take off (5:55pm), saw the chick, but mom didn’t do a feeding.

    1. Do you know how many? I just watched the 6:12pm feeding and it looked like the one being fed was out of sight, with another chick and an unhatched egg visible toward the farthest side of the nest.

... and that's my two cents
