The Birth of a Hummingbird

Well, technically this is about the birth of two hummingbirds.

How did we find this? 

A friend of DIT found it and emailed us the link.

She included this by way of explanation:

"Keep in mind the egg is smaller than a tic tac 

and a quarter fits the opening of the nest!  ...

Note:  Be sure to click on next page at the bottom of each page; there are 5 pages in all.

This lady found a hummingbird nest and got pictures all the way from the egg to leaving the nest.

It took 24 days from birth to flight. … … "

These are amazing photos.  HERE'S THE LINK
