The Story of BIRDING on BAKER Street & Anna's Hummingbird Nest

On the days leading up to June 5th, I had been noticing a lot of commotion in the evergreen fruitless pear tree in the front of my house. Our resident Hummingbird Anita was feuding with an Oak Titmouse that had shown up in the area. I did not realize that Anita had built a nest in the tree and was defending with vigor.


On June 5th, 2013 while I was watering the garden Anita flew down to within a couple of feet of me, and then proceeded to show me where her nest was. I was worried immediately because the nest was in a precarious place. So I watched the nest for the next couple of days, and then on the seventh day, I could see two little beaks sticking out of the nest. I then set up my camera and started filming.


The video chapters below are the trials and tribulations of a young female Anna's Hummingbird trying to raise her two young offspring.
