How to get hummingbirds to nest! I love the mosaic look of the moss that humming birds sculpt onto their nests. Humming birds are very allusive but some people have actually trained them to trust the human hand.
After a ruby-throat baby learns to fly and leaves the nest, its mother may feed it for another week, but then it is on its own. It even migrates solo. In fall, a ruby-throat begins the southward journey purely by instinct.
