the 3 previous days there was little activity around the nest. Day 8 resumes much activity as the hummingbird broods the first egg. A shacking behavior is noticed probably to either raise the mother's body temperature, or to transfer heat to the egg. The temperature the morning of this recording is about 65 F.
