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.

Approaching 5:30 pm EDT – I glanced at the Hummingbird feeder and said, “That’s NOT a Hummingbird!!” embarrased One Finch was on the feeder and then I noticed another one on the shepherds hook in the background giggle

The first two Finches flew away as this third one approached the feeder. I got this lucky pic with the camera on my smartphone angel

Nice pictures Kathy. My perspective is messed up. They looked bigger than the finches I have, but similarly colored. Do you know what kind they are?

friends, i enjoyed all your posts, the vertigo, that is rough, i had that once, too. it felt like a wet bag kept spinning around in my head. but after a couple of weeks, it went away, thanks god.hope your vertigo is only a short period of time. then the moose, great, i would like to see that, too. in scotland, we saw plenty of red deer, i love that. then the introvert, debbie described that really good, so did you, kathy. i need time for myself, too, to sort out my thoughts. too much going on all the time… Read more »

I’m glad your church member is OK. Sounds like such a tiny difference between life and death. It will probably give her a new lookout on life. Bet Scotland was beautiful. Do you have to have a visa for every European country you travel through?

the european countries, we had been in like france, belgium. luxemburg, netherlands, great britain with scotland, ireland, north ireland, austria, italy, switzerland, hungaria, romania,poland, we did not need anything beside the passport, and they would not even look at it in most cases. on some borders, there are not even persons, to control you. we were not in holidays in all these countries, some we only drove through on a trip to another country. yeah scotland is truly beautiful.

Wow, you have been a lot of places. I’m not surprised you can cross across these borders freely. It used to be that way in the US going into Canada or Mexico, but not now. Anyway, I guess all the countries you mentioned are on good terms with each other. No real hostilities.

Oh how awesome. A Hummer hovers just about two inches from the screen in my window. My eyes had to be less than three feet from him. He hovered for several seconds, as if he was looking at me! I could hear the buzz of his wings. Then another Hummer swooped down and the chase was on! The show today has been the best I’ve ever seen.

I saw some golf discussion earlier. Have any of you heard of the Barbados Championship? I take it that the tournament is just a small, insignificant one. I don’t know the hierarchy of tournaments in golf. I didn’t recognize any of the golfer’s names which led me to think it a lesser tournament. The televised tournament is just 1.5 hours from where I live; hence, my curiosity.

I haven’t heard of that tournament; must be a qualifier for the majors

What are the names of the majors? I see tournaments on tv and some of them I don’t know how they rank.

The 4 Golf Majors: The Masters, U.S. Open, British Open, USPGA Championship – there are a lot of not so minor ones that also serve as qualifiers for ’em, the Phoenix Open comes to mind.

Thanks Pam. I know the tournament earlier was in Britain but can’t remember if it was the British Open. It is similar to tennis. Tennis has 4 majors, then the bigger, then lesser tournaments. They all have a certain number of points the players earn depending how far they go in the tournament. Points accumulated determine ranking. Bet you already knew all that. The points not only qualify for the big tournaments but determine if a players has to face another high ranking player early in the tournament. Unfortunately, I know little how it works in golf.

Hey Debbie — I think you meant the Barbasol Championship that is a PGA tournament held in Kentucky this weekend. https://www.pgatour.com/competition/2019/barbasol-championship/leaderboard.html

The Ruby’s sure have been at the feeders this morning. Eat, fly at each other, fight, chase. I have heard the buzz of their wings through the open window. Nice!! Yesterday I saw some that looked smaller than usual. Bet they were recently fledged. Watching hummers is a remarkable gift.

That’s awesome Debbie ♥ When I changed the hummingbird nectar this morning I was buzzed by a hummer trying to come and feed at the juice bar giggle The hummer didn’t realize that I am friend — not foe blush
