Fluff feeds her chicks

Fluff, an Anna’s Hummingbird, feeds her chicks shortly after they hatched. The chicks are about the size of raisins and require gentle feeding every half hour or so to ensure they grow into young healthy birds.

Leaf and Petal Share a Moment

I was filming an Anna’s Hummingbird nest for several weeks and just before the chicks fledged, Leaf put a wing around Petal as if to offer encouragement for the big adventure ahead.

Hidden Hummingbird Nest

I knew there was a hummingbird nest nearby, but a much as I searched, I couldn’t find it.., until Mama came home to roost. She settled down lightly on a small nest hidden in the lichen. It was almost completely invisible without her on top.
