Mods, move this thread if it's in the wrong place or lock it, but please leave the link.

I just had to share this with the members. It reminds me just how fragile life is.
This guy Vel actually found a humming bird nest, cronologically photograhed the nest, and eggs, hatchlings all the way to the point the little fellow left the nest.

I've been around humming birds all my life and have never seen a nest much less a baby humming bird.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I have!

Really incredible pictures, birddawg! I have never seen a hummingbird nest before. Thanks for sharing it.

One thing though - did Cain really toss his brother out of the nest?

thank you for sharing, the pictures were beautiful and I too have never seen a hummingbird's nest. too bad the other little bird didn't make it, but that's nature for you.

Here's a pic I took a couple of years ago of some hummingbird babies.



The nest is built on the wires of a motion detector under the car port.
It shows how nature is adapting to modern world.

Adorable!

I love those little critters. They come after the flowers I have in my little garden every year. I've never seen a nest either.
Thanks for the pics.

Thats a piece of what I call zip cord, right? Same thing as lamp cord.

Yeah, regular old houshold wire about the size you'd find on the back of a lamp or TV set.

I love the one picture in the thread but for some reason I can't get the link to work -- it looks like it is going thru but nothing come up when it is done. Do you think it would make a difference if I went and took the link to Safari instead of IE??

thanks
jm

You can sure try, I personally use Mozilla FireFox. But I tried IE and it worked fine. Try the other browers.

I'm not promoting here: normally I use opera but it displays incorrectly. The ATS board displays better under FireFox and it loads faster than IE. You should try FireFox, it's safe, fast and free.

Hope this helps

Had to post one of my fav hummingbirds -- the Rufous, native to the NW region of the US. Enjoy!

First time I've seen a hummingbirds nest. Thanks for the pictures birddawg.

Are you sure that's not CGI, because I've heard of hummingbird nest but have never seen one until now.

thank you Op for this post.
i grew up around ruby throated hummingbirds, crescents, and more.

i remember watching their mating dance throughout the years near our local ravine, and had always adored the birds in the utmost way.

one year in the break of the end of summer, i remember them all gathering around the feeder we had hanging to "fuel-up" before they left on their 8,000 mile migration.
you could stick your finger under the feeder foot rest and have a hummingbird fly up and sit on your finger and drink its weight in fuel before departing on its journey till next spring when they'd return.

totally amazing.

thanks for sharing, and thanks for the memories.
