Watch These Hummingbirds Take Their First Flight

It’s miraculous when any bird takes its first flight, but it’s rare to witness the exact moment. In this video, watch two hummingbirds leave the nest for the first time on New Year’s Day. After the first one departs, its sibling hangs out to enjoy another meal delivery and to practice hovering before it lifts off into the wide world. Thanks to our partner, Inkaterra Asociación, viewers watched live from the cloud forests near Machu Picchu, Peru, as these young Green-and-white Hummingbirds grew up and fledged.
