Hungry Babies 8 - 9 days old

LaurieJune 2, 2011

These 2 little babies are about 8 - 9 days old (at the time of the picture...May 30). Nest is in my MILs rose bush. Fun to watch : )

I've added a link below to my other post where you can see the mother and the eggs.

Wonder when they will begin to fly?

Here is a link that might be useful: Mama Hummingbird on Her Nest

Great pics!!! Thanks for posting 'em!! I think they leave the nest at about 21 days old, give or take a few days.

ctnchpr - Thank you for letting me know that they will be leaving their nest at about 21 days old.
We will miss them : (

How likely is it that this female hummingbird will return to the same nest next year (or whenever she has more eggs)?

I could be wrong about this, but I don't think they reuse their nests.
