The hummingbird chicks have hatched!!!

ANHU_chicks-North_Van-2015_04_08

I know the photo above is far from great, since I did not want to disturb the nest too much, but I wanted to share to good news with you: After a lengthy wait, two Anna’s Hummingbird chicks have decided to point their bills out of the nest. This photo was taken in the late afternoon yesterday and I will post new ones as I things evolve! Our neighbour says the mother is often away from the nest, but can be seen busily feeding the little ones.

  1. So exciting–thanks for sharing their progress with us! Our pair of Anna’s haven’t been around in over a month; we’re patiently waiting their return.

    1. Why thank you! But of course, I am no way responsible for what happened, so I can only take so much credit for the birth, aside from a bit of positive encouragement (and not disturbing the next too much). 🙂
