Default Hummer babies have arrived!!!!

For the past couple of days, the mother has been fussing inside the nest with her beak, and I wasn't sure if she was turning her eggs over or they have hatched. Well, yesterday when I got home I could barely see TINY chicks getting fed!!! I didn't have much time at the end of the day, but will try again today when I get home.

#1 The babies are hairless, black, with huge closed eyes and short yellow beak.




#2 This is not a very good shot, but you can clearly see two set of beaks.

Thanks Raghu, I'm really looking forward to the next couple of weeks (babies are full grown in 3 weeks) while I watch them grow, and share photos (and video) with you all!
