Diary of a Broad-tailed Hummingbird and Two Nestlings
On 17 June 2010, a neighbor alerted me and I began photographing a Broad-tailed Hummingbird nest in a newly planted Canadian Red Chokecherry (Prunus virginiana 'Shubert') on a neighbor's property.  It is unknown when she built the nest and laid two eggs, but she obviously was sitting on them on 17 June.  Although I had company and was out of town for a few days during part of mid-July, I guessed that the two nestlings fledged on 20 July 2010 based on my photographs.  Another neighbor called me on 21 July to say that the female was feeding them in her newly planted crabapple tree.  So, I photographed them a final time in that and another nearby tree at noon and the eve of 22 July 2010.
