Day 6 of Baby Babette's life.

Today is the first day I have seen the Baby lift its head like this to feed. What a rush. And relief. Phew.



Mama flew back to her nest after I disturbed her and assumed this body language. See her spread tail feathers? I think she was trying to hide her nest from view to protect her Baby.

Hummingbirds are one of my favorite birds, I love seeing your photos....keep em coming.
