An Anna’s Hummingbird returns to her nest to feed her hungry chicks. She feeds them a steady diet of sap, insects, and nectar.
You can see this and other related videos at the blog page on my website:, where I present a three-part blog post about this Anna’s Hummingbird and her chicks.

    Wow! I’ve never seen Hummingbird’s nestlings and nest before, so your videos are a rare treat. Thank you for sharing this rare sight. And thank the birds, too <3

  2. Hello Valentina,

    Thank you for your comments. I spent six weeks photographing, filming, and observing this hummer and her chicks. Being with them, whether in sun or rain, was the highlight of each day.
