Shout-Out Sunday No. 9 – Hummingbirds

The Shout-Out Sunday web site for today, 02 March 2014 is:

Baby Hummingbird Nest – Cool!

by Alek Komarnitsky

In the author’s own words about this site:

“After having nesting house finches with 5 babies on my front door, a neighbor who enjoyed that saga Email’ed me about a hummingbird nest at a nearby golf course. I have some old pictures of Colorado hummingbirds, but had never seen a nest.

“It’s amazing how well camouflaged it is – would have never seen it if it hadn’t been pointed out to me – thanks Brian!

“Be sure to scroll down as the pictures get better … and check out the Hi-Def videos at the bottom.”

– Alek Komarnitsky

This is truly an amazing collection of images – a hummingbird’s nest is very, very small. The author shows us, up close, just how small it really is on this page. Take a little time and peruse down thru the many photographs he has captured of a mother hummingbird and her babies going through the birth and eventual fledging of these precious baby birds.

Stunning photographs. Enjoy!

Remember, spring is getting very near…

Cheers for the baby birds all around us,

Bex

It’s in every one of us to be wise;

Find your heart, open up both your eyes.

We can all know every thing without ever knowing why.

It’s in every one of us, by and bye.

    Aren’t they sweet? So tiny.

    You may find out that this author, Alek, has been known to do an internet hoax once… but he made the most of it in the end and confessed it all, however, this site about the hummingbirds appears to be totally legit. He just loves taking photographs of natural elements. The hoax was concerning Christmas light on his home in Colorado apparently… you can google it and read about it but I wouldn’t let it stop you from enjoying these birds one little bit.
