Hummingbird Feeding Her Chick

An Allen's hummingbird (Selasphorus sasin) feeding her 2 days old chick. I discovered her nest in California when she was still building it. Later I saw her sitting most of the time on the nest and supposed she had laid eggs. Two chicks hatched on Monday after Mother's Day.
