I wrote awhile ago, but didn't get any responses. When does nesting time begin, I am in Ohio. Do the females stay in the nest?
I don't know when nesting time begins in Ohio, but nature seems to be late in doing things this year. I live in New Mexico. A few days ago a hummingbird built a nest on my front porch. Yes, the females do sit on their nests, but they leave from time to time to eat. The males don't help rear the young.
