Baby Hums, 10-Days Old

Here's a photo David took about an hour ago of the baby hummingbirds, who are 10 days old today. Their eyes have opened, their wings are getting bigger and feathered, and their beaks are much longer. They look less like space aliens and more like baby porcupines now. They jostle each other for room in the nest.

Momma hummer spends more and more time away from the nest collecting food. Actually, there's no place for her to sit anymore when she does come home!

Yep, that's poop on the side of the nest!
