I happened upon this hummingbird nest with hummingbird babies in it as I was doing yard work. The nest is only about 8 feet above the ground and securely nestled in a Manu Plantano tree. I probably wouldn’t have noticed them if I had not seen the mommy hummingbird flying to it. They are the Rufous-tailed variety. The mother hummingbird normally only lays two eggs so it is exciting that both these little guys made it. We estimate that they are about two weeks old because they are just starting to get their green feathers.
Barry put a ladder close and attached a soft-box to his camera in order to get these shots without disturbing the hummingbird babies. See close up shots of the nest and eggs here Hummingbird Eggs
