  1. I like the classical music that accompanies the brother kicking the other brother out of the nest.

    and how do they feed their kids without ripping a hole in them!!!

  2. This is absolutly beautiful, God has done and still does a beautiful job with all of His creation. We love watching the humming birds, and now I will think of their life process. Thank you for sharing that. Sharon

  3. Right now I have a humming bird nest and babies in our garage….she built on top the electric motor of the garage door opener. We leave the car outside now. They were born on the first day of spring, yesterday…March 20th. We watched her build the nest the end of February. Each nite I close the garage door and she stays there til I open the door in the a.m.

  4. Thanks so much for the great camera work! We’re watching our own little hummingbird family and are happy to report that they’ve survived record high temperatures and wind. According to your video, our little guys should be ready to leave the nest in about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks. Poignant to watch the remaining chick decide whether or not to follow in it’s siblings “wing-steps”….not so unlike our own family. =)
