Queen of the nest!

Alone, after her brother left a day before. She is not ready to flight yet.

 

A hummingbird must consume approximately 1/2 of its weight in sugar daily, and the average hummingbird feeds 5-8 times per hour.

 

Depending on the species, habitat conditions, predators and other factors, the average lifespan of a wild hummingbird is 3-12 years.

  

Hummingbirds have no sense of smell but have very keen eyesight.

 

Anna's hummingbird. California.
