This rufous-tailed hummingbird was filmed in Panama. She had one egg inside the nest and was adding further nesting material as she brooded it.

Watch her fly off periodically to fetch tiny samples of moss and leaves and then tuck them neatly into the side of the nest with her long beak. They will provide extra insulation for when the chick hatches.


  • Noreen Added I hope we will get to see her tiny eggs!!!!! So small!!!!! She is so beautiful.
  • Ruth Added I really enjoy what you send out about animals of all kinds, it i really a treat for animal lovers. To me they are gifts to us and are what humans were meant to be but failed. Animals are just natural, who they are and real...I love that! Thank you, Mel for all you share with us!!
