Why would a hummingbird abandon her nest?
Do hummingbirds abondon fully built nests and if so why?
The middle of March a hummingbird began to build her nest in our back yard tree. Fast forward, this weekend I thought I saw her feeding chicks, but I did not see or hear babies. I assumed she was still working on the nest, but this is a month later.
Yesterday in the eve another hummer was near the nest and agitated by me. The nesting hummingbird took off after the agressor and I have not seen her since. I don't know if I should check the nest for hatchlings, leave it alone or what. Needless to say I am concerned about her after having watched her every move for the last 30 days.
Any input would be greatly apprciated,
