Anna’s Hummingbird’s Mating Behavior

The courtship of Anna’s hummingbird (Calypte annae) is marked by the extraordinary display of the male soaring and diving in flight. After mating, the female gathers materials to build a nest and during this time the female will make 150 trips per day to gather  the materials to build the nest.  The nest building process will take a week.  The female will lay two eggs and the incubation process will take between 12 – 20 days. Once hatched, the chicks are fed predigested food.
