I have filmed about 100 hummingbird nests and this one is special. This Rufous Hummingbird came back to the exact spot where she nested the previous year and started another nest. I was able to film from a friends roof and got a great view as the hummingbird took care of her hatchling. You can see the first ever feeding of the chick and even the first flight. Keep in mind that the egg is the size of a coffee bean and the hatchling about the size of a raisin.
