Humm.4Alek K has incredible bird nest photography. He's been recording what happens in a newly discovered nest, it's great!

Great pics Craig.
I work as a tour guide in Costa Rica and our clients would die to get one of those pics during a tour. Enjoyed the post and thanks.

Hi Tom,
Glad you enjoy the pics … did you see the Slo-Mo video of the parent swooping in to feed the babies … I think that one is particularly cool.
Need to head over this morning to see if they are still there … very close to fledging!
Best Wishes,
alek
P.S. Any chance you work for Costa Rica Sun Tours? My wife works in the travel business and works with them – they do a great job and I really enjoyed my visit years ago to your beautiful country.

FYI that the Hummingbirds fledged Monday morning. I've updated the web page with a bunch of new pictures showing the last few days with the parent – some pretty nifty pictures/video if I do say so myself … 😉

I was darn lucky to have this photo-op … but I'll be on the lookout for more Hummingbird nests!
