Baby Hummingbirds - The First 21 Days

Here I compiled all the footage of the baby hummingbirds from the beginning to the time they left their nest. Also, added some pleasant background music to finish the project. Hope you like it!

Special thanks to Jim and Suzy Viano for letting me film the nest outside their home.

I felt sad for the mom when she came back to the nest and found it empty! She is probably relieved though! Her beak is so pointy, you would think she might hurt the babies when she is feeding them. You did an awesome job filming their development! If I was teaching, it would be great to show it to students. Thank you! Betty

Thanks, Betty! I actually saw the two babies fly from their nest. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera ready. The babies looked very experienced in flying. They probably were practicing all day on Easter and by the time I got there, they were pros. I felt a little sad and relieved at the same time too.

Great video. How lucky you were to be there to film it all!

Thanks, Bev! It was so interesting to watch two small eggs turn into adorable little birds.
