Hummingbird nest very small and well camouflaged, image taken in Altos del Maria, Panama.
Our Rufous tailed hummingbirds babies hatched and get food from the mother who looks after them by herself. The nest is built with materials from spiderwebs and plant parts, is adorned with bits of lichen so its hard to find. The chicks grow up fast and are ready to fly out in about 3 weeks.
