Honey, a tiny Black-chinned Hummingbird, has come back to her nest she built on the Carroll’s backyard clothesline! Witness this breathtaking process from the moment Honey lays her eggs and her tiny hatchling Ray and Zen peck themselves into a new life until they fly out of the nest for the first time. We are there every step of the way.
This 45-minute documentary is narrated by Noriko and is scored with an inspiring soundtrack by critically acclaimed musicians: Suzanne Teng, Jeff Wahl, Justin Bianco, Richard Savino and Mutandina. The DVD also includes: a special “MAKING OF” featurette provides you an inside look at how the Carrolls captured this amazing footage.
