Just for fun, here's a live web cam feed of Phoebe the Hummingbird refurbishing her 'half golf ball sized' nest, soon to house her new clutch of babies!
Phoebe recently gave birth to 'Sandy' and 'Faith'. They both fledged just last week. Amazingly, Phoebe is already preparing another nest for a new clutch!
You can learn more about Phoebe, her habits and her remarkable abilities and history as a mom at the Ustream link provided.
It is impossible to visit this web cam page and NOT get hooked. Watch the miracle unfold as Phoebe diligently prepares her nest, lays her eggs and so attentively raises a new set of babies. Phoebe is an incredible creature!
If you tune in and the nest is empty, she will be back in short order. She is very busy today gathering spider webs and fluffy fillings for the nest bedding. This nest is located in Orange County, California
Well, first there was a guy making macaroni and cheese, then a hotel in Las Vegas selling shows, then an add for tax services, so after a minute I stopped watching.
Sorry maybe next time.
Her species is probably Anna’s Hummingbird. They are year round residents in Southern California.
Indeed. ‘Channel Island Anna’ hummingbird.
I have 4 Hummingbirds that stay all year now. If you continue feeding they will stay through winter months. Sometimes I have to bring in the feeders so they don’t freeze!
She is back in her nest now!
Cool. Thank you!
The ‘nest videos’ link on the page contains some neat milestones in Phoebe’s life; hatchings, fledgings, etc..
I was just wondering about Phoebe the other day.
I’ve posted her website many times.
Adorable little mom.
So I took your dare and didn’t think I would get hooked, but once I saw Phoebe, I adored her! You were right! Can’t wait to see the new babies!
After this video, the nest video is when a lizard showed up at the nest.. The gentleman who owns the house where this nest is DROVE HOME FROM WORK TO KNOCK THE LIZARD OFF THE BRANCH and it's all on video.
Four nests here. Two on Catalina Island and 2 on Santa Cruz Island near Santa Barbara.
Here are some baby eaglets in Florida.
Here are the bald eagle cams again.
Amazing battle with the lizard! I was sort of wondering what took the caretaker so long to come to the rescue, so driving home from work is understandable and awesome. (Can you imagine if he got pulled over by a cop? “Yes, officer, I realize I was speeding, but you probably don’t realize that a hummingbird in my yard is battling a lizard to protect her eggs right this very minute!)
Oh, and I’m so hooked that I’ve passed the link on to friends and family. I bet school teachers would like to show this to kids in the classroom, too.
Thanks! He (or she?) is in the nest right now! How regal!
You might not want to check out the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam or you'll get addicted to that too. LOL The two baby eaglets are currently out of view at the nearside of the nest, but it's incredible to see the parents, Ozzie & Harriet. Bald Eagles are HUGE.. Tall enough to reach a door knob of a standard door!! They often bring very large fish to the nest.
OK, so the one adult flew off and is now back with some dead animal, not sure what. Is this the momma or the daddy? I thought the males would look like this, but I have a lot of learning to do. Are the females as beautifully colored as this one?
This video shows the size of a bald eagle compared to a cat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdJqzVQEgIQ
As you can see, there's no shortage of bald eagles (and ospreys too): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZJKmPa42PM
Bald eagles are HUGE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HO0O0SAgPuc
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
One of my favorite nests is the Maine cam. I made a video ( Christian) from that nest 4 years ago with the mama Eagle
I'll send links in a separate post. Can't seem to get them to work otherwise. :-(
Ozzie is the designated provider of food, but if he's having a slow day of fishing, Harriet will take it upon herself to go out and get a fish or road kill, etc.. She has done that a few times.
That looks like dad on nest right now feeding in Florida.
Dad is smaller. They both look alike. White heads. Babies don’t get their white heads for 5 years. They mate usually for life.
my video made in 2008. ( Christian song and Maine eagle visit)
Lots of resources and info on the Window of Wildlife...
Unlike most birds, bald eagle females are marked nearly identical to the males. Males being more ‘showy’ does not apply here.
Thank You Lord, for blessings without number :)
