The most exciting development in the past month is the hatching of the eggs of a female Anna's Hummingbird. She is currently feeding two healthy chicks.

Kevin Mack, PAWS naturalist, has been keeping a close watch on the activities of the mother and her babies.

Take a look a photos of the hummingbird and her nestlings, as well as other activity on the PAWS campus.
