Arizona Hummingbirds By Carol Buckley

 

  Camp Verde Arizona.  This is an artificial tree right by my back patio door.

 Your ALT-Text here Keeping those eggs warm.  This picture was taken through the screen from inside the house.

 Your ALT-Text here They were so small when they hatched that we thought that something was wrong so we didn't capture the first of the eggs hatching. Little did we know they were only the size of raisins when they come out of the egg.

 Your ALT-Text here In less than a week and they have grown so much?  I tried to capture a picture of her feeding them but I couldn't get that close.  I suspect that one will fly out of the nest within the next few days.  They look ready to me.

 Your ALT-Text here The first one left the nest and then returned and spent the night in the nest. The next day he left and has not returned to the nest but comes to the tree.  I suspect he is encouraging this one to leave the nest.  The mother bird is still feeding both of them.  She finds the other one in the tree or where ever he may be and feeds him or her, can't tell if it is male or female.

 

When the last one left the nest this morning.  She stood on the side for a long time and then finally she took the leap into the air.

 On the feeder so soon.
