Will the hummingbird return to her nest?

23 January, 2010 (01:45) | hummingbird nest | By: admin


The hummingbird made a nest on our porch and has been seen there constantly for 2 weeks. Tonight, however, someone approached the nest at night and scared the bird away. I checked couple of times since and did not see her returned. What’s going to happen with the eggs? Is the nest destroyed? Please no joking answers – I considered having a nest on our porch as a blessing and will be really upset if the bird doesn’t return…

If she left the eggs all night they may have died, but she may have made her way back to the nest without you knowing and continued to incubate the eggs. You need to keep you distance from the nest, as disturbing it too much will cause here to abandon it. Remember, you are considered a predator to the bird. You should only check it from afar or from inside the house where you cannot be seen. She may very well still be tending to it and may be coming and going when you are not looking. Birds will sit on the nest all night so you might check late in the evening to see if she is sitting or not..but one again..do NOT get too close. If the eggs did die, she will build a nest elsewhere and try again.

  • What kind of nest do I have on my porch?I think I might have a hummingbird’s nest on my front door, in a wreath. The nest is small and composed of string and other small, flexible sticks. The nest is completely covered however, so I’m not sure if it is a hummingbird or not. Are there any other birds that build small nests that are covered

Birds are usually very protective of their eggs, but maybe she was badly scared away. You could contact your local animal control they may have a solution for the eggs.

It might not. Go to Walmart and buy a humming bird feeder; it doesn’t hurt to try.

hey if it has laid eggs then it will come their automatically. don’t worry. but one thing how do you know that it had laid eggs in its nest? ur disturbing or i think u r watching it always i think so! listen one thing animals are more sensitive then us. it will be watching from somewhere who is next to its nest. so you do your work don’t bother about it . kindly maintain peace in that area. don’t allow any one their. in evening when sun sets u just hide and see it will go into its nest.

I read that a humming bird nest with 3 eggs or more will not survive. Is this true? Is there anything I can do to even out the odds?
