Bye, Bye, Hummingbirds

In the scant two weeks between now and my last blog post about the hummingbird nest in my friend's garden, the hummingbird chicks have gone from being nothing more than floppy little appetites with stubby, gaping beaks to needle-billed birds with buzzing wings. They now hang out with their mom in a treetop, where she defends them and feeds them with as much vigor as she did when they were tucked in the nest. My friend R.'s pictures are below. Enjoy!
