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.

Nesting Information

1st egg laid 12/25/18 2nd egg laid 12/28/18

Hatch is 15-18 days from the date the 2nd egg is laid. Estimated Hatch date is around 01/12/19.

For dinner tonight I thawed sockeye salmon from Aldi and made our usual marinade we like to use. I took a “before baking” pic but forgot to take an “after baking” pic. It was very yummy!

It looks dee-lish – I LOVE salmon 😋

Kathy S

I thought of you when I started preparing the salmon blush

Bet neither like Salmon more than me! What is in your marinade? Is that parchment paper you line your dish with? Bet it makes for an easy clean up.

Kathy S

Here’s the usual recipe we follow when baking the salmon I pictured above. The baking dish is lined with Reynolds Pan Lining Paper which is Foil on one side and Parchment on the other; the foil helps the parchment conform to the shape of the dish. This product makes clean up super easy!

Thanks Kathy! I bet I’d like that even better on plain fish. I took a screen shot of the recipe. Tiliapian cod, catfish, etc. I tend to like a sweeter sauce on salmon, like an Asian sauce, with something like Old Bay. I’m sure I’d like it on the Salmon also, but I may definitely gonna try it on the fish.

Howdy-do BellaLand – Does anyone know anything about Chromebook? Sis is trying to add a manual mouse via Bluetooth & there’s nowhere to click on Add Device — the YouTube looks easy but isn’t. Thanks in advance ♥♥

Well I’m probably the last person to give any sort of computer advice. But I believe Chrome is the internet program. You may need to search for adding a device to your computer operating system, such as Windows 10 or whatever it is. I suspect you have the little plug into the USB port? A lot of time the add device comes up automatically.

That’s what we expected too Debbie; unfortunately, Chromebook has this thing called Launcher and we can’t figure out how to get to Add a Device. It’s one of my least favorite things about Chrome, that anticipation feature. UGH

KyDebbie

If I understand right, Chromebook is a type of computer and operating system, whereas just Chrome is an internet program. Sorta like my iPad is a type of computer with its own operating system with Safari as the internet program.

Exactly

Sis’s taking her Chromebook to BestBuy on Monday; they’ll get it going for her & show her some tricks ♥

That’s a great idea. Do they charge for the Geek Squad? If they do then I bet some youngster in the computer dept. could help her free. We bought our iPhones at our local cell phone provider. It is just a KY company and cheaper and just as good as the big guys and way better customer service. If you call them even at the main office in Elizabethtown you never get anyone with an accent. That isn’t a prejudiced statement. It is just a statement that big companies often off shore their call centers and I have trouble understanding… Read more »

That’s awesome about the local kids, Debbie bigsmile

She bought her laptop at BB and she’s in their database; it’ll be free for her. I love smaller stores because of the customer service too. And this household has sincere sympathy for the inability to understand off-shore accents. Nothing against it, just difficult.

I totally agree. However, I for one wish the jobs stayed in our own country. Just think how it would help Appalachia and other poverty areas to have those kind of call centers there that could be snuggled into the mountains and don’t require interstate access. Locals could be trained to take service calls. The coal industry was the main employer for the area but is fizzling out for cleaner sources of energy. Think Coal Miners Daughter, one of my favorite movies.

Yesterday DH-Craig emailed DD-Lauren and me to share info posted on his school’s Facebook page about Friday when he was presented with the Crystal Microphone. Lauren was so proud that she shared with us a post she put on her FB page cheese Neither Craig nor I have FB accounts but we know many of our family members do and are ‘friended’ with Lauren so they were able to read how proud she is of her daddy sparkleheart

That was a great tribute. Spoken from the heart. A proud daughter. If you have a lot of family on FB you may want to get an account. I have one but I almost never post on it. I read what is called the newsfeed, which is the posts of everyone I’m friends with who have made recently, lots of cute animal videos, then junk you quickly scroll thru. I sometimes comment on others posts. I don’t spent a lot of time on FB like a lot of people, and not even every day.

Kathy S

I have no desire for a FB account. I already have too much to distract me each day and FB would make it worse for me. Anything I really NEED to know, I find out about thru ‘old time’ communication wink

Doesn’t really fit the comment tho’. 🙄 should’ve paid closer attention

But it’s Snoopy, Pam, so it’s all good cheese

KyDebbie

If it goes with Kathy’s post about hubby and Lauren then I think it fits. Sometimes other posts get between posts and then it doesn’t seem to fit.

To Pam and Kathy, loved the descriptions and pictures of your close encounters with the family kind. Everyone seemed to have a great time! Jenn, I’m trying to remember your visit with your sis. I know she was not feeling well with bp pressure issues. I’ve dealt with med changes. Hope she isn’t developing AFIB. I believe I’ve had it for as long as 20 years. It can be hard to diagnose because it comes and goes. The EKG does not show AFIB unless you are having an episode at the time. I had many of them until I just… Read more »

Many of them referred to having negative EKGs.

Thanks Debbie!

Well I feel really guilty that I’ve waited this long to write. Thanks to all who asked about me and sent well wishes. I’ve managed to read most posts probably, but just didn’t feel like typing one of my own. I was feeling very good Thursday, but well enough to eat a normal supper. Then started feeling bad, but it didn’t feel like AFIB. Mostly nausea. Spent about all day Friday in bed, no food. I can’t remember whether it was Friday or Saturday my new little EKG monitor registered the a AFIB. Heart horrible. Pulse up to 123 bpm… Read more »

I feel very fortunate to have people that, even though have never formerly meet me, are warm and loving enough to care, ask about me, and tell me I’ve been missed. I guessed when I get that sick, I should try harder to do a post, even if it is only the one word sick.
