Guess Who I Saw

Checking out the nesting box.  I hope that means we will be seeing a family sometime soon.  Gotta brush up on my bluebird knowledge.  Or maybe I will just talk to my friend Denise.

Oh Look!



 
I just happened to look up from the book I was reading and saw a hummingbird.  Haven't taken the time to photograph them this summer, been too busy taking pics of the chickens (NottaLotta Farm Blog).  By the time I got back and focused this is all that  was able to get.

What A Difference A Few Days Make

Denise and I were up and ready to shoot some hummers this morning at 8AM.  I know just call us crazy!  Wow have they grown.  One is slightly bigger than the other.  And there was lots of action today.  They are squirming around in the nest and stretching their little wings and legs.  We could have spent all day watching...we will go back...soon.

Baby Hummers

Denise and I went back to check on our babies today and look what we found...
 
Two babies with their heads up.






We waited close to 1 1/2 hours for the mom to feed them.  We did see her approach the nest but she never went in to feed.  Looks like we will be making another trip back on Sunday afternoon to see if we can catch her in the act of feeding.

Look Who I See

 Just happened to be looking at the nesting box at just the right time.  I have been hearing the babies make a fuss and have yet to see them.  That is until tonight!  Now I am not going to get anything done!
 

Must be dinner time!

I see hungry mouths to feed.

What a lucky shot!

Short Visit Today

Today we visited the humming bird nest...guess what we saw...
Two little beaks pointing to the sky waiting to be fed!  We even climbed the ladder again to get a better look and there they were.  Two little heads are as big as the tip of you index finger and now smooth and dark grey.  We didn't see mom or dad at all today.  We plan to go back at the end of the week to see if we can catch a shot of them being fed.  Keep your fingers crossed!

We Have Babies!

Tonight in between the raindrops Denise and I discovered that the hummingbird eggs have hatched.  You ask how we know this?  Because we took a ladder and climbed to the very top, pulled the limb down and looked in the nest.  I saw at least two little tiny fuzzy heads.  We are going to give them about 4 days to grow and the we will return to see if we can get a few shots of them being fed.  We have made so many new neighbor friends.  I think they think we are crazy.  Well, maybe they are right.  But this is a once in a  lifetime experience and we don't want to miss it.

Bluebird Dump









Mom and Dad bluebird are busy feeking 4 babies fed.  We feed them meal worms.  It is fun to watch them take turns feeding the babies.  I keep hoping to see four little heads looking out of the hole.
