She's a Mama!

The hummingbird eggs have hatched! We noticed little pieces of shell the other night. We were worried that maybe the cat got into the nest but when we climbed up to peek in, we saw teeny tiny babes. Their bodies are much larger than their heads and they have almost no feather but seeing such new and small beings was amazing.

We must now resist the temptation to check in on the babies every day and give this new mama some space. It's been so exciting watching this process unfold and we can't wait to see these babies take flight!
