The Hummingbird Babies Have Arrived

Ladybird’s babies (or the twins as we like to call them) have hatched. We are so excited. Like all newbies to the lives of hummingbirds, we immediately had concerns. Concern 1: The mommy is not on her nest as usual. This is normal behavior. She will leave the nest more and more the older they get. Concern 2: The babies don’t make ANY noises. This is normal too. It’s their only defense mechanism not to make a sound. As a matter of fact, if the babies start chirping extensively, then they are in some sort of distress. If all goes as it should, they should be out of the nest in about 20 days.

Here they are a few days old.
