Hummingbirds first flight :)
Jun 20th, 2012 by Autumn Sunshine
I just had to share this video, it’s sooo cute!
Nature is awesome!
Check out this video of a baby Hummingbird sitting next to the nest, getting fed by mom, saying goodbye to her/his sibling, and taking that very first flight!
You can also see the mother prodding her other baby with her beak, as if to say, “Come on! This is what birds do!”
The woman who shot the video in Silicon Valley, CA, reported that when she returned 4 hours later, both had left, and she saw one of the young ones at her feeder later in the afternoon.
I just couldn’t believe the second little hummingbird was so hesitant, it must have had to think and think before deciding to fly off with it’s little sibling 🙂 Watching this sort of thing just makes me smile!
