These are some of the best High Definition photos and videos on the web. When there is active nest, I have a live webcam which you can access for free as well. Over the years we have watched about 20 nests from egg to flight and all the drama that occurs during that process. I now contribute info to several universities and a lot has been learned from these up close videos. When you click on a video please be patient, it's High Definition and takes a minute or two to play. If you want to support me, please donate here; Donate » It takes a lot to keep this going.
Unlike other sites where the action is confined just to the nest, I follow and document the behavior of the fledglings and Mothers after they leave the nest. This takes a lot of time and effort but the insights are remarkable. I do a lot of hummingbird rescue and research and if you want to support me please take the time to donate a few dollars to help. I have a lot of expenses to bring you this website and your help is appreciated. It also lets me know my work is valued. I have a very active Facebook page where I post a lot of things so please check out Hummingbirds Up Close on Facebook too.
If you want to download the videos and photos for your own use, like photo frame content or making your own prints, I ask for a small donation. but you can look at them for free.
