(Update, March 29: The second egg hatched early this morning. There are now two healthy hatchlings in the nest.)

For those following the story, the first of Phoebe’s two eggs hatched this morning. They usually hatch in early morning and I usually miss it. Anyway, there’s now a baby hummingbird in the nest. One more to come. Let’s hope there’s no drama this time around.

        • Ah yes, one of my favorite videos. I’m always amazed that the hummer goes back inside after being free to leave that first day.

          On one of my older posts I mentioned that the first time I saw a hummer in the wild, I thought it was a big bumblebee. I was just a kid, playing in a mountain meadow full of flowers and bees and such and this “giant bumblebee” buzzed by me several times. Really scared me at first. To this day I can’t get over a bird being so tiny. (but better a bird that small than a bee that big!)
