    THE BIRTH OF A HUMMINGBIRDThis is truly amazing. Be sure to click on NEXT PAGE at the bottom of each page; there are 5 pages in all. A lady found a hummingbird nest and got pictures all the way
    from the egg to leaving the nest. Took 24 days from birth to flight. Because you'll probably never in your lifetime see this again, enjoy; and please share.Go to this sitehttp://community.webtv.net/Velpics/HUM

    That was way cool!!!!!:smile2:I thought they nested after they arrived in our area ,which is usually May but evidently not.Any idea where in the country the pictures were taken.I have seen a few here but have none on the feeder yet.They tend to favor natural around here until the azaleas and dogwoods are done.Then they come to the feeders.Thanks:big_smile:

    Thanks Dean, those were awesome!

    When you get to the end of the 2005 pics, at the bottom of the page is a link to some from 2003. The 2003 say they were taken in California.

    Reps for sharing, Dean!

    I found a nest once in the fall while hunting. It's amazing how small they are and how well camoflaged they can be.
