Oil painting on canvas of an adult male Anna’s hummingbird. Painting measures 16″ X 12″ unframed.
The female Anna’s builds the nest, lays two eggs, feeds her nestlings average every 15 minutes. She continues to protect and feed them even a week and half after they have fledged, left their nest. The male hummingbird does not participate with the construction of the nest, the feeding or the care of the young hummingbird chicks. His function is procreating the species and protecting his territory. Monique F. Rea Copyright 2010
