  3. Amazing photo!
    And Brava! Brava! to Mrs. Hummer. Job well done. Hopefully Mr. H will give her a break for a while, so she can at least get a pedicure and a massage.

    1. Not totally sure--one site says Rufous (if they are Rufous and not Allen's) is 15-19 days, other sites say 21-30 days. Looking back at the 1/27 post where they are fuzz-covered blobs, 10 days ago, the difference is amazing!

  6. You have Rufous hummers! I love the Rufous variety. They make quite a treck in their yearly cycle from the southwest up to Alaska. Often Rufous moms will have two clutches of babies and will build their second nest on top of the first one.
