Baby Hummingbirds: Day 14 and I see green!
Aw. Here's what happens when baby birds start getting too big to fit in their nest. Wings everywhere!
Though Itty and Bitty seemed sound asleep when I peeked in on them Itty threw open his mouth waiting for his next meal. Bitty couldn't have cared less about food. All Bitty wanted to do was sleep.
It gave me a chance to get a close up picture of Bitty's wing and the little feathers breaking out of their casings. And do you see what I saw?
Green feathers! The babies feathers are coming in green along their backs. Oh so cute!
Watching them sleeping so peacefully I couldn't help but wonder if they dream. If they do I wonder what they dream about. I guess eating. Maybe that's what Itty was doing earlier, sleep eating. LOL
