Little Bella, the hummingbird, has been nesting in the branches of a ficus tree in La Verne, California, since at least 2005. She was diligently raising to four to five broods every year, in a nest the about size of half a golf ball. Each of her precious eggs is slightly bigger than a Tic Tac. After about two and a half weeks, the eggs hatch, and the tiny little chicks will begin exploring the world. Bella protects her babies and feeds them a diet of insects and nectar. The babies fledge 21-25 days from the hatch and are ready to discover the joys of flight. Join our loyal community of viewers in watching this patient mother throughout her breeding season.
