The hummingbirds have hatched!
Mommy is still sitting on them. A few minutes ago I took a chance and ran out there with a hand mirror when she was away from the nest. The nest is about the size of a shot glass
I quickly looked in, and there are two tiny little lumps, instead of eggs. About the size of pinto beans.
I couldn't get a detailed look, because it is kinda dark under the eave. I won't be bothering her again, just one quick look and I'm done. I don't want to upset her at all.
But here she is sitting on the babies. Directly above the wind chime.
That's so neat. I hope one of them is a male as it will make it a lot easier to identify what kind of Hummingbirds they are as they get older. Please let us keep following them with you.
I saw her hovering yesterday in the sunlight and she looks green, so maybe Anna's hummingbird.
Baby hummers are gone! It was 4 weeks ago that I first saw the eggs.
They were there at 7:30 am, but gone at 10am. We saw one nearby, but then it flew off. Look at all the poo they left behind!
There is a LOT of smoke in Boise this weekend.
Yesterday, as I was finishing my morning walk with Resa I looked up and saw a "sunset" at ten in the morning.
One of those unreal and "must share" moments...
Taken with my phone.
