THE BIRTH OF A HUMMINGBIRD

This is truly amazing. Be sure to click on NEXT PAGE at the bottom of each page; there are 5 pages in all.

A lady in CA found a hummingbird nest and got
pictures all the way from the egg to leaving the nest. Took 24 days from
birth to flight.

Because you'll probably never in your lifetime see this again,
enjoy; and please share.

That was beautiful. Hummingbirds and dragonflies are my favorites and sacred to the first nations people of the west coast. They are both so delicate.

Brightened my day. Thanks Catherine.

Couldn't get the pictures, but am sending the URL to people who are ardent hummingbird lovers.

I, too, love hummingbirds, dragonflies, and butterflies. Have been trying to grow milkweed for the Monarch's for years and it just won't grow here. I am pure nag to people who have it on their property and cut it down.

Will try again next year.

Thank you Catherine for bringing us that wonderful piece of nature. When I get a better computer I will enjoy it!
