Update to Momma Hummingbird...


Lookie see!? 2 Eggs!!!

Googled hummingbird nests and found out they usually lay two eggs, but don't start the incubation period until the second egg is laid (usually a day or two after the first one is laid).
Then in about 16-17 days, the eggs will hatch and they will be little black squiggly things with yellow beaks. Within 40 days total, the little babies will be ready to fly away!
Wonderful site with a great video of eggs to birth to flying away....

Watch this video below!
