Hummingbird update

Photos taken yesterday, babies were 11 days old, (I think):
baby hummer


beaks up
This is kind of a weird angle, huh?  They're too big to fit those beaks in the nest anymore, so they keep them pointing up now.


And, as you will see, Mama hummer is still ramming the food down into their little gullets. But the babies are a lot bigger than they were in my first video.

Oh, and in answer to LyndsayB, the nest is in a camellia bush.  The whole bush is maybe 7 feet high or so.

Here is the bush. The nest is in the little red circle.




















These little pine-coney looking things are what's left over from the camellia flowers, which bloomed several months ago.
