Baby Hummingbirds in Nest


Baby Hummingbirds in Nest  (Baby Hummingbird)

Two baby hummingbirds which hatched about three weeks ago are growing very fast. They still don't have the long hummingbird-like beaks, yet. Photo taken in my tropical guava tree on Mar. 11, 2013.

Awww look at that, Amazing Delonix, do they have any preditors to worry about? I hate nests in my garden as its too heartbreaking and stressfull when they first fledge, The Magpies start stalking my garden! Horrible birds but its nature..

Mama hummingbird defends her babies from the crows very well. Soon the babies will be leaving the nest.

Yes, I was so surprised when I discovered the hummingbird's nest. I have lots of hummingbirds in the area...just never saw one nesting in the yard.

Did you take more photos of the nest and birds ?

18 Mar, 2013

 

Yes, I have a few more photos. They're so cute, but getting big (for a hummingbird). They should be gone soon.

I'll keep a look out for more pics ...

I may take a few more pics before the babies fly away.

I'm thinking they still have a little while before they leave the nest, because they haven't developed the long beaks for eating, yet.

Did you see the original photo of mama hummingbird sitting on the nest?

Such a beautifully constructed nest....

It looks very strong. It's so small, though...the babies now barely fit into the nest.
