I've been like a momma bird watching her nest the last few days:) I knew it had to be close.
MommyBird has been a little extra antsy and hanging around more. I'm sure it couldn't possibly be because this human mommy (me) keeps hanging around her nest!
I kept checking out the window today for a moment when MommyBird was gone and made my move.
These photos aren't National Geographic perfect but they capture more than I have ever witnessed in person.
I literally gasped when I realized the eggs had started hatching. That there was a baby bird where a little egg had been laying all these weeks.
I marveled at their newness.
Their sweet little beaks and their newborn beauty.
The 2nd one is not even all the way out of it's egg here.
Like all newborns, the little baby is already looking for MommyBird for some food.
If only......I know I know.......I can't feed the baby hummingbird. But.
I would if I could.
You can sort of see the 2nd one trying to finish breaking out of it's egg lower in the nest in this photo.
I wish you could zoom in and see this photo up close. The actual photo is a much better view than my little blog can show you!
MommyBird is back and she is guarding the nest like a hawk.
I respect that.
I'll let the little family get to know each other better.
Snuggle a little :)
Job well done!
Seriously though. I thanked Heavenly Father for the chance to witness this little miracle. To see them literally as they broke free from their eggs and came into this world.
Can you all imagine the sap I am going to be when I have a grandbaby?
I'm such a lucky chick!
