Hedera - Heddy for short - is an Allen’s Hummingbird nesting outside a home in the San Fernando Valley near Los Angeles, CA. She’s caring for her two young chicks amongst the ivy on a bottlebrush tree, a favorite nesting site of several female Allen’s Hummingbirds over the years. In fact, Hedera Helix is the Latin name for the ivy she nests in. A female Allen’s Hummingbird will build a nest, protect her eggs, and feed her babies all by herself. After incubating her eggs for about 17 days, she’ll nourish her chicks on a diet of flower nectar and small insects, until they fledge at 22-28 days old. Heddy, like most adult Allen’s Hummingbirds, is roughly 3.5 inches in length and weighs about 3 grams. Her nest is the size of a golfball, built with bits of plant material held together with spider silk, which stretches as the babies grow. We invite you into their tiny, fragile home to witness the beauty as the family grows.
