This is too cool! "The Birth of a Hummingbird"

post #1 of 17

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. Took 24 days from birth to flight. Because you'll probably never in your lifetime see this again, enjoy; and please share. The nest is not even as wide as a toothpick is long!

Heidi- that was awesome, and to see how small that nest really was in the last picture was amazing!
Thanks for the share, I love hummingbirds!

That was wonderful, thanks for posting it. Hummingbirds are truly a wonder.

I got my hummingbird feeders out too late last spring, I won't make that mistake this year.

How incredibly sweet!

It always amazes me how they go from looking like helpless little aliens to gorgeous flighted birds. I love birds.

That was aweome, thanks for sharing.

I handraised a Starling from about 5 days old. She lived to adulthood and was released back to the wild. Last I saw her was 3 years ago when we moved from the farm. I hope she lived through the winter and had babies of her own in the spring.

I have this actual page in my bookmarks. It is an awesome site. I love hummingbirds. They are my favorite out of all the birds. Always so curious and fast! I wait for them to come every spring and do whatever I can in the yard to attract them. I'm just glad I get a sweet black-chinned hummer each year. I have tons of flowers and even made them a little waterfall at the pond, but haven't had any luck yet. It is only the first year since I redid it and made it bigger. It is always so amazing how birds survive, especially hummers.

That was cool! I'd love to have hummingbirds in my garden (first I'd need a garden). They're just the most amazing birds.

Wow, truely amazing. I can't believe she got those pictures. It's hard enough to find a hummingbird who's not in the nest.
