Beautiful drama at the Hummingbird site.
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 08:48 AM by The Backlash Cometh
So the morning broke with just one bird in the nest. The one which hadn't fledged yet was still there. So we're watching this baby trying to fly when suddenly, the other one came back to the nest again, landed like a pro. This has never been observed on this cam. These two babies share an uncommon bond.

3. Beautiful!
I have been watching since they hatched. It is SO fascinating! Both Haruka and Kouki are still in the nest as of right now. Phoebe is such a good mom.

8. I can honestly say, I have never once seen a Hummingbird sitting/landing/nesting. ..ever, in real
life. Amazing birds. Thanks for the link! They're beautiful. Who are those two pecking each other?

9. You mean Haruka and Kouki?
They were born the day of the tsunami, I believe. And named in Japanese.
