Honeysuckle and Humming Birds

I have sipped from God’s flute,
Her clear rich wine through Eden’s route -
So divine my sight found,
Want released
brings Her Angel of Awe on wings of thunder
to rent this day asunder -
A Cosmic palette unleashed.
I stumble from Her garden,
My eyes, like Eve’s, forever brown.

Life Cycle

Q. How long do hummingbirds live?

Most hummingbirds die their first year, but when they've survived a full annual cycle, their life expectancy goes up dramatically. The record age of a banded ruby-throated hummingbird is 6 years, 11 months. The record age of a banded rufous hummingbird is 8 years 1 month.

Q. How do female hummingbirds select a mate?

Male hummingbirds, along with many other animals, have what is known as a territory. A territory is simply an area that a male occupies and chases other males away from. A female hummingbird will visit a male's territory, at which time the male performs a courtship display to try to convince the female that he is the best male around. If she likes his display, she will mate with him. If not, she moves on to another territory.

Q. Do hummingbirds mate for life?

No. They don't even stay together to raise the babies. The female does ALL the nest building, incubating, and caring for the babies herself, and a male hummer will mate with any females that he can attract to his territory. These are NOT romantic birds.

Q. What is a hummingbird nest like?

It is not much bigger than a ping pong ball. The female makes the nest with tiny bits of leafy material including little lichens, and weaves it together with spider silk. She builds the nest on a branch in a tree. A hummer will not use a birdhouse.

Q. What are hummingbird eggs like?

Each egg is the size of a jelly bean, and is white. There are two eggs in a clutch.

Q. How long does it take for hummingbird eggs to hatch?

Ruby-throats incubate for 11 - 16 days until the eggs hatch. Rufous hummers incubate for 15 - 17 days.

Q. How much do newly-hatched hummingbirds weigh?

Ruby-throats weigh 0.62 grams when they hatch. This means 3 just hatched hummers would weigh less than one American dime.

Q. What do hummers feed their nestlings?

A. When the chicks hatch, they need protein, not sugar, to grow. So mother hummer spends most of her time catching small insects and spiders for them.

Q. When do young hummingbirds learn to fly?

Rufous and ruby-throated hummingbirds both begin to fly when about 21 days old.

I get such a kick out of being able to see the transition of these babies from eggs to baby birds.

Also I find it a serendipitous occurrence that the Mother allowed her miracle to be shared.........

It was funny....haha roflmao

I was just sitting on the porch with morning coffee and cig and noting the yard/garden flag with the two hummingbirds painted on it, my mind flowed to the many hummingbird references I have noted this year, and naturally that flow found itself spending some time on Fossileyezed videos/experiences.........not only with the babies, but with the buzzing feeders.

Here is the cool part. I come in and do a DTV thread check at this was at the top of the list~

What a long strange trip it's been..............
