They Hatched!

 Oh puppers and kittehs, you'll never guess what.....go ahead, guess! 


 Ya'll remember the hummingburds we have nestin' under the patio cover?
      (this is Mama hummingburd....)

Well, lookie what I saw yesterday.............

 It's kinda hard to see the little guy/gal peakin' it's little head outs of the nest, so Ma waited and waited ......

 OMD!!  Look at the little guy!!! It's eyes aren't even open yets!!!  And it's beak is soooo small yet!  Ma was all kinds of excited that he poked his head out enough to gets a good picture!! 

Gotta keep my  eye on em' to make sure they stay safe....I'll keep ya'll updated....

(Ma, could you bring me a chewey...this might take a while.....)



  1. I hope it doesn't fall out of the nest - you make sure you tell your mom if it does - NO trying to pick it up yourself okay!

  2. We've never seen a baby hummingbird. Take good care of the little guy.

  18. Oh MY Oh MY that is so exciting! Can't wait to see them progress. Guard them well my friend.

  19. You are so lucky to be able to watch them grow. Keep us posted, but we don't want you to bother them so they will be happy.


  20. Yawza, that's the niftiest thing that you could ever discover in your backyard! :-D What a cool, itty-bitty baby birdie! You make sure that you keep your eyes on it though, cause you never know what they are going to do!! :-)

  21. Rubes, I am so excited for you! You have a big job now. I just know you will be the best baby bird guard EVER! Try to get some sleep and eat now and then. I can't wait to see more pictures.

    Loveys Sasha

  22. I am very happy this bird nested at your house because I know you will take excellent good care of both the Mom and baby. Do they usually lay several eggs or just hatch a couple?

    Cheers, Ruby!


  23. How exciting! I've never seen anything like it before! We have starlings in our eaves but we can't see them, we just hear their tiny chirps.

  24. I love those little birds. They can be so friendly. Why you watching them all the time they will think you are family and might get real close to your face. They buss me in the summer on the porch because we put sugar water out for them.
    Thanks for being a friend
