The Birth of the Hummingbirds

Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)

 

This YouTube video provides a stunning video, set to the music of Mozart, of the birth of two hummingbirds.

You can watch the mother building the nest, see the eggs hatch, and get a unique view of how the mother bird feeds her young and prepares them for independence. The video is approximately 8 minutes in length. 

Some interesting facts: a hummingbird egg is very small – like the size of a small jelly bean or pea. And the nest opening is only about the size of a large walnut, ping pong ball or golf ball.

And here are some amazing pictures of Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds from the Bird Photo Gallery of the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center.
