What a treat to watch this mommy take care of her little one until he was ready to leave the nest and begin his life in the world. Thank you for sharing this.

I'm fascinated with these beautiful creatures. I draw and paint them w/acrylic paints.

I love the teeny tiny feet tamping down the nest bed.

Thank you for sharing this lovely video. I've loved hummingbirds all of my life. This was the first time I've seen a hummingbird nest, chick, feeding etc... It's so amazing to watch them. ❤ They are incredibly beautiful.

So sweet...love these birds

Oh no, hail!

What does Leucistic mean? It must be the coloring, because I've not seen one of my wintering Anna's to be that color,

Eric. What exactly is rigged up to that glass flower? I would be interested as I have a couple of those flowers.

I know these are rare but how rare are they ?

Oh my goodness, it's gorgeous

Beautiful, amazing beauty

Such a pretty little bird.

Love ❤️ this bird 🦅.

I love your site!

Tangie...

I've got about 10 Anna's at my house. I'm refilling my feeders (2) every other day. Don't take your feeders down; I'm in Duncan.

How long before they head southward bound???

Such a pretty girl!!

Wow so beautiful!

While I was on my patio today I noticed something when I saw a hummer come to my feeder. There were no bee's around the feeder and when the hummer came I noticed 2 bee's flying around and trying to get at the sugar water, then when the hummer flew away the bee's seemed to follow. Have you ever observed this?

Tangerine blends in with the leaves.

Wow! She is beautiful!

Beautiful💛🍂🍁

Here's a great view of Tangerine, the Leucistic Anna's Hummingbird. I call her Tangerine because she is kind of pale orange and white. Have a look as she takes a good stretch and shows us all her feathers. ... See MoreSee Less

Is this one of the Matson Conservation Area hummers? What a beauty.

Tangerine is a perfect name; so pretty!

Are you quite sure her ancestors are Anna's and not Rufous?

What country is this?

Beautiful! Our hummers are gone for the winter, and we do not have any like these one!!! Wish that we did.

Great background to show off her color! Thanks for sharing your wonderful photography of such an interesting subject!

I just got back from Alaska where I was helping a BBC Wildlife film crew find and film hummingbirds. It was a great adventure and I learned a lot! This website happened because I had a very prolific hummingbird in my yard. My wife and I called her Sweetiebird and she has had six generations of chicks in our yard. I filmed the last four generations in HD video and learned a lot about hummingbirds. Since then, it’s become a passion of mine. I have been a photographer all my life and I love photographing these birds. The HD video is really a great way to see them. The image quality is stunning and the process of watching the birth and growth of these hummingbird chicks is fascinating and beautiful. A large part of the joy is watching the day by day growth of the chicks and then the anticipation of flight. Sweetiebird has since passed on but has been replaced by Flower. As well as filming the birds in my yard, I watch the hummingbirds in a small bit of protected forest near my home called Hummingbird Hills. I have filmed about 60 hummingbird nests from egg to flight now and have gathered amazing information about the little birds – where and when they nest, the mortality rate, and even some of their social structure. Each nest is different and fascinating and I have been able to film some very interesting sequences. The pursuit of hummingbirds has become a passion for me and I look forward to each day with a camera when I am able to have a peek into their tiny, private world.

I also have a Facebook page which you can find by clicking on the link and you can see some of the drama that goes on as I watch these birds. Sometimes birds get their nests upset, or fall prey to other forces of nature. These are wild birds and things do not always go as planned. When I find a distressed bird or nest, I take it to Wild ARC, which is it’s best hope. They do amazing work out there, and if you want to help wild birds and animals, please donate to Wild ARC. They do a great job of saving wild birds and animals that would otherwise be left to suffer and die. They have helped me several times when I needed assistance for hummingbirds and other animals.

If you like what we have to offer, please consider a donation to help keep the site running and more filming coming!
