Hummingbird Hatchlings

These tiny little bitty hummingbirds hatched directly over my barbecue one season.  I couldn’t bring myself to remove them so there was no use of the barbecue so it sat there, idle.. cold and neglected for at least several months.

It was such a pleasure to watch momma bird bring them their meals and feed them several times a day.  We were able to watch from right inside my home from a big kitchen window.  These pictures were taken outside with me perched on a chair and I was surprised that the mom let me get so close without freaking out.

  1. Your pictures are amazing! I just love hummingbirds. We see a lot of them up at our cabin since we have a feeder up there. You are so fortunate to have been able to see the babies up close like that!

    1. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw them. I’ve taken several pictures of hb in flight but they aren’t nearly as neat. Thanks so much for your feedback. It means a lot. 😀
