Yes, mama hummingbird was very, very angry! I couldn't believe the whole time she was flying around my face, hand and the camera to get me away from her babies. Hummingbirds are extremely protective of their babies! She'll fight with the crows to keep them away from her nest, also.

Parents of many wild creatures can become uncharacteristically bold when protecting their young ..

Yes, I know. You never want to mess with a mama of any animal, mammal species (humans included), they go for the jugular! That's just nature. :>)

We have many hummingbirds here in California. They are around all year. Don't you have hummingbirds? They are only native to the Americas.
