Baby Birdorable: Anna's Hummingbird

December 27th, 2010 in Baby Birds, Hummingbirds 3 comments

If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr) of the Anna's Hummingbird. Female Anna's Hummingbirds select the nesting site after a territory is established (often based on a nectar source). They build the cup-shaped nest alone. Two eggs are laid and incubation takes about 16 days. The baby hummingbirds fledge about three weeks after hatching.
