I have seen the nest with the tiny eggs, but this is the youngest baby hummingbird visiting. Barely able the fly a few feet at the time.
Baby hummingbird, have yet not figured out where the feed is, and needed a rest
3 at one feeder
friend or foe
room to feed for all
some friendly fights for the best spot
faster than my camera shutter
baby resting – size of a pea pod
such a pretty bird
baby resting on a pea wine
eying the flowers, not sure how to get there
This baby hummingbird hang around for hours, only flying a few feet on each flight, resting a lot. Eventually tried every flower, and finally also found out how the get the sugarwater from the feeders. It would sit and rest on places where hummingbirds normally would not perch, like on my car.
Such a nice visitor, made my day !
