Hummingbirds are masters of camouflage. It’s a challenge every year to spot their nests!

Not a beauty contest!

These recently hatched hummingbirds seem so fragile. This nest is within easy jumping range of the cat but it makes for an easy photo. Click on photo to enlarge.

Hummingbird nests

Posted by blueberrytalk on July 2, 2010

Hummingbird nests are hard to find as you can tell from the picture on the left. This one is in an oak tree. We don’t usually expect to find young in a nest this late in the season.

Hummingbirds and Black Locust

Posted by blueberrytalk on June 3, 2010

The hummingbird feeder had to be refilled every day with six hummingbirds squabbling over a perch. The demand at the feeder dropped off suddenly. Then we noticed the hummingbirds feeding from the Black locust flowers. There are two large Black locusts within fifty feet of the humming bird feeder. Another hummingbird favorite, honeysuckle, will be available soon.

Baby Hummingbirds

The baby hummingbirds are so unafraid you can touch them. Their nest is close to nature’s hummingbird feeder – a honeysuckle plant. It’s fun to feed the baby birds with honeysuckle blossoms!

Hummingbirds arrive late

Posted by blueberrytalk on April 11, 2009

The hummingbirds have finally arrived in April. This is testament to a very late Spring. With an early Spring they have been known to arrive in February. Most years we discover their tiny nests and enjoy watching the young develop.
