Day 16: Baby hummingbird eyelashes and Bitty gets gypped!


Itty bats his/her eyelashes at the camera. Yeah, that's right I said eyelashes!


Well, in actuality they're pin feathers growing out that look like eyelashes but in a day or two they'll be soft feathers once they break out of their casings.

And then I watched poor little Bitty get gypped. After landing and feeding Itty, mama took off before feeding Bitty. She'd been chasing another hummingbird away from their tree for the better part of an hour. I'm not certain that's what was going on but she was chattering non-stop! You can hear her if you turn your volume up.


Kind of sad that in just a few more days the babies will fledge and leave the nest. I'm guessing they'll be gone by next Saturday.
