Feeding time video of the baby hummingbirds!

If you've been following the progress of Itty and Bitty you're going to love this video! Yesterday evening (day 10) I put a ladder up across the lawn from the nest and waited with my Lumix GF2 camera and 100-300mm zoom lens for the mama hummingbird to return. It took a while but eventually she showed up and I captured this. . . If you listen carefully you can even hear them chirping. . .

In case you're unable to view the video, here's a brief photo version of the process.

The chicks were impatiently waiting to be fed.

This is the tree the nest is in. See it just above where the yellow flowers are on the lowest branch?

And a screenshot taken from the video of the babies rising up out of the nest to be fed!
