I found a hummingbird nest in my tree…?

28 February, 2010 (04:35) | hummingbird nest | By: admin


It’s on a very low branch, so I can also see that there are eggs in it. Unfortunately, being the naughty 3 year old that he is, my son threw a ball up toward the nest. It didn’t injure the bird or harm the nest. But, the the bird left the nest & has not come back. (This was much earlier today) It’s now almost 10 pm my time. If the hummingbird doesn’t come back what should I do?

It will probably come back tomorrow. He probably just scared her off. Hummingbird babies are so cute! We had a nest last year and it was incredible to see the babies get way to big for their tiny next and then one day they were gone! Keeping my fingers crossed for your hummingbird to return! If she doesn’t come back the eggs will probably not incubate properly and they wont even hatch.

Enjoy a bite-sized omelet in the morning. There’s really nothing else you can do.

The bird has probably been back several times…unless you have been watching continually for hours on end, you really cannot say for sure if the bird has been there or not. Also, if you are approching the nest, this could be keeping the bird from going to it. Birds don’t sit on their nest 24/7, they have to leave from time to time to forage and feed. Leave the nest alone and keep you son away from it.

I think you should find a way to keep the eggs warm if the mother isnt stting on them. Cover them with a piece of blanket or something. They need to stay warm, and watch when they hatch!
