Final Update on our Hummingbirds

For those of you who missed it, we had the privilege of housing a hummingbird nest on our wind chimes for about a month or so.  The eggs finally hatched late July but the babies were too small to photograph clearly.  It took about a week for their beaks to be visible from the nest.

After about two weeks of growing, they were full size and ready to take off! 

Buddy and Sweetpea loved watching them through our screen door once we could see the two little beaks poking up from the nest. 

The hummingbirds took off from their nest around August 10th and we've kept our hummingbird feeder stocked with food.  To be honest, I probably most enjoyed watching this process and I secretly hope that the hummingbirds using our bird feeder today are the momma bird and her two babies!
