Live Hummingbird Nest Cam

This is a live broadcast of a wild female hummingbirds nesting. There are several Hummers that nest in this yard. Some have been given names such as Bella, Rosie and Luna. Their nests are located in Ficus trees and no larger than the size of a golf ball. The nest is made from feathers, leaves and other parts of plant matter. She then wraps this material together with spider webs. The eggs she lays are about the size of a breath mint(tic-tac). Bella lays 1 or 2 eggs per clutch. You can expect to see them hatch after about 17 days from the date they are laid. The chicks will continue to grow in the nest for about three to four weeks before fledging. She has been laying 4 to 5 clutches each year for several years. When it's not nesting season you will see a Hummingbird feeder on the live cam. For more information about hatches, camera set-up and more check out bellahummingbird.com.

Pam, our neighbor told Denny that a guy on the road above ours ( through some woodland ) is planning on having a pig farm! We don’t see anything going on there when we drove around recently. I know when we were driving home from FL, I think W. Virginia on Rt. 81, there was an incredibly pungent smell from pig farms. Wow, it nearly knocked me out. Danny of course had his nose out the window smelling away…lol

Oh nooooooooooo, they smell so bad; i mean REALLY bad … all that lovely forest fragrance will be gone — i’m so sorry 😟

We get a daily good prevailing southerly wind here, which would be very beneficial! I don’t believe they guy is going to have a pig farm honestly. We saw one pig out in the yard, you know how rumors get started! I didn’t really know ho81w bad it was until we were driving home this year. The farms were right along the roads.

Hi Pam, I’m really frustrated with this and understand Nannie Mae’s frustration angry Spending too much time fooling around with it the past few days.

I have tried everything, it won’t give me the option to “crop” a picture to fit. Just repeatedly sa)s it is not big enough. So crazy sad

Kathy, I wanted to ask you about eye drops. I know you have mentioned that you have dry eyes before. I am having problems with that and have been using lubricating drops called Systane. Do you know of this one?

Kathy S
Member

I am familiar with Systane lubricating drops but these did not give me a feeling of relief when they were instilled. For use throughout each day, I use Preservative Free GenTeal Tears that come in single-use vials (each box has 36 vials). I usually order my online from Walgreens.com or from whoever has the lowest price when I do a search online. My eyes react negatively to preservatives so that is why I have to use “Preservative Free” drops. At night I will use Systane Gel when needed.

Good evening folks My goodness, if these chats get any wonkier I have tried everything to get an avatar to work…from a tiny smiley to a picture to everything in between. All say not big enough. I’m giving up on that for awhile. I had my original when we briefly went to the old chat, wish I could get it back. Survived the mammogram today and praying for good news on it from my doc soon. One more appointment down…Thursday dental cleaning and June 4th a physical

I know what you mean about the constant chat changes. I had to change to resize a new avatar that is similar to my old one and got it to work. I am glad the Mammo is behind you and hoping for good results ♥

Member

How did you make that change Kathy. When I click on change avatar, whatever I pick it says it is too small.

Kathy S
Member

I have something called “Paint” on my computer. I brought up the image I wanted to use in Paint and resized it to the dimensions that were mentioned when I tried to get my original avatar restored. I don’t know if what I just said will be helpful for you or not.

Member
Jenn

Thank you Kathy. I do not have paint so guess it will not be an option for me majorsad

I wonder if there is another way you can resize your pics??
Or … if you can email HNF and ask for guidance??

Member

I will try to find a way to resize a photo soon. Thank you Kathy♥

If anyone is interested — there is a brand new Osprey cam with great clarity. There are 2 babies and 1 unhatched egg. Mom and Dad were both on the nest during a feeding session and I got this screenshot silly

My hearing checkup went well. The last appt was 15 months ago and I am thankful my hearing has not gotten worse in that time. The hearing Dr says for me to come back in 2 years for my next hearing test — unless I become aware of significant changes before then. My right ear is worse than my left but not enough to need hearing aids … yet wink

DD-Lauren took care of changing her car and renters insurance today. She was previously with Travelers but chose to go with Geico for the excellent military discounts they offered. UGH … sorry about the ‘slow as turtles’ internet! {{HUGS}} ♥
