Anna’s Hummingbird Nestlings

On the left is an oil paintng on wood panel.  The subject is one of my favorite creatures in nature, hummingbirds.  Their acrobatic ballet flying abilities are incredible.  Only the female hummingbird builds the nest and cares for her 1-2 nestlings.  She’ll continue feeding them 1-2 weeks after they have fledged from their nest.

My many years in rescuing hummingbirds has given me a wonderful  and unique opportunity to observe them up close.

There are some great DVD’s about hummingbirds available, “Hooked on Hummingbirds”,
“Hummingbird! Beauty and the Beast”, “Mother Hummingbirds Life”.
The PBS special, “Hummingbirds – Magic in the Air” is beautiful and informative.
