hummingbird fountain

Hummingbirds, like many other birds, visit bird baths for a quick rinse. Bathing helps keep their feathers in tip-top condition. Cleaning their plumage may improve flight, keep protective feather oil evenly distributed, and enhance insulation.

Hummingbirds get all the water they need to drink from nectar and sugar water, so this fountain is strictly for dipping in!

Rosie is an Allen's/Rufous hummingbird hybrid believed to be an offspring of Bella Hummingbird. This is Rosie's second season nesting in this ficus tree and her second clutch of the current season. Her first clutch - Blossom & Banji - fledged on March 4, 2016. She started building this nest in the ficus before those chicks even fledged.

Rosie, like other hummingbirds, can raise up to five broods each year in a nest about the size of half a golf ball. Each of her eggs are slightly larger than a Tic Tac. After about 15-18 days, the chicks hatch blind, naked, and helpless so Rosie feeds them a diet of insects and nectar. The babies fledge 23-28 days from hatch and are ready to discover the joys of flight.
