Default Baby hummingbird update

The babies are getting bigger, at Day 6. I posted a few videos here:

Watch for mother's beautiful feathers towards the end of the second video.

Thanks for the ringside view, Saly. We are very privileged indeed to view nature's beauty and mother's care through you. How was the video done? FZ35? Very crisp, congrats!

How very fortunate we are to be able to witness this rare experience, thanks to your painstaking care in photographing, & videotaping it!

My goodness, it looks like mama's beak could stab the babies!

I'm curious, does the mom feed them nector?

Thanks Alex, jj, Carol!!!!

Carol - this is the only time a female hummer eats insects. Once that is nicely mixed with nectar in her tummy, she brings it up to feed the chicks. Chicks can't live on nectar alone at this age, the need the extra protein from the bugs to grow.
