We’re Parents … of Two Baby Hummingbirds!

Sometime in the last few days I noticed mama hummingbird, whom I’ve decided to name Gloria, has been away from the nest a little more often. I began to pay more attention to her comings and goings. Low and behold when she came back to the nest one time it sure looked like she was feeding her hatchlings.

Gloria going in for a landing to feed her two little ones.

So, yesterday, I took a closer look and there are two little babies in the nest. I was able to get a photo of the little guys, whom I’ve named Cam and Mitchell, this afternoon whilst Gloria was out. Also, I’m pretty sure I was mistaken when I reported three eggs.

My two babies, Cam and Mitchell. I think they kind of look like wooly worms. Can you see their little beaks poking up?
