Default Hummingbird baby update - June 12 - Video

Day 6. The babies are getting much bigger and active. They still have no feathers and their eyes aren't quite open yet. The mother feeds them every 15 to 20 minutes, and sits on them in between to keep them warm. During the hottest part of the day, she will sit on the edge of the nest to provide shade!

Here are some videos, watch for mother's beautiful feathers towards the end of the second video.

Thanks for the excellent videos on the update of the baby humming birds. I have never seen a humming bird standing still. Needless to say one who is feeding babies. Thank you very much for sharing.
