Description

While we were away from home for a few weeks in the spring of 2017, a hummingbird built a nest on top of a wind chime about 3 inches from a window of our house. Being unfamiliar with bird species identification, all I did was take a number of short videos from June 16 through July 4, 2017. The first chick hatched between June 9 and June 11, the second sometime on June 11 or 12. The last chick flew away July 4. We were away when the first chick flew away. I named the mother “Constance” because she was of course constantly on the job. The chicks I named Exe and Wye because their size was variable.
