Hummingbird Chicklets Arrive!


photo taken by my sister, Kathy Allen, in British Columbia

For anyone following the wee hummingbird mama who built her micro-nest on top of a Christmas light bulb, here are her new babies .... I'm calling them chicklets, they're so tiny. For a sense of scale, look at the wire their nest is built around -- that is a string of holiday lights!

aren't they so so so so cute, E? They aren't much bigger than an almond!
