Here’s a Mother’s Day hummingbird, tending her big chicks today, May 11, 2014. It’s Mother’s Day today here in the U.S. and in many parts of the world.
We think this hummingbird mom is the same Anna’s Hummingbird who already successfully raised a brood of chicks this season. But there is no way to really know. The hummingbird babies in this nest are about to fledge. One of them was practicing wing flapping this morning.
There are many other hummingbird mom pictures in these recent posts: Desert Botanical Garden nests, a nest in the Aviary at Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, and a mother feeding a fledgling. Older posts: a mother feeding young babies, and a mother sitting the nest.
Happy Mother’s Day to all moms and their families!
Back to home.
