Hoku

I don't know who names these birds but the one remaining in the hummer's nest is being called Hoku. He's really big now - almost too big for the nest.






But as you see, Phoebe is still feeding him. Here he is, begging for food.







And here she is, feeding him again.









A moment after she had finished, and left him on his own again, he was stretching, and beating his little wings a hard as he could. He will fledge very soon for sure. He stands up on the edge of the nest, and keeps trying.

Such terrific, fun shots of Hoku! He is trying, isn't he? Love it! Thanks for sharing, Bobbie!

Amazing shots Bobbie!
Her nest must be so tiny.

He must be related to my cats who are also always hungry/begging even right after they are fed.

These are wonderful. We have hummers every year but I have never found their nests. Great photos, Bobbie.
