We saw the PBS Nature show on Hummingbirds last night and liked it. It inspired us to show you our own footage of baby Violet-crowned Hummingbirds in Portal, AZ getting fed in their nest, that we took when we made our Stokes Birds At Home TV series on PBS. We made this video just for fun.
The Violet-crowned Hummingbird is a very unusual hummingbird found in this country mainly in a small area consisting of the adjacent corners of southeast AZ and southwest NM. They are casual to central CA and TX. The adult male and female look similar and have a violet-blue crown, white throat and red bill with a black tip. In this country, their nests have been found in Sycamore trees.
