Baby Hummingbirds Day 20: Papa?
Got home late tonight and saw this. A male hummingbird sitting at the tippy top of the hibiscus tree. Not sure if this is the papa of our babies but I thought it was odd that this is the first time the mother has allowed another hummingbird onto the property since the babies were born. If he wasn't backlit you'd be able to see the bright red patch under his throat.
I thought this image was pretty lovely.
And here's Itty and Bitty. Itty is in the back and Bitty is in the front. It's pretty amazing how Itty almost looks like an adult hummingbird already!
