    Thumbs up

    ((((((Hugs to All)))))) ~

    Over 20 years ago, a hummingbird built her nest in our neighbor's ornamental fig tree, which overhangs our fence. We set up our video camera on a tripod in our bedroom and moved it to the downstairs bedroom (back and forth) and captured every moment of her Motherhood.

    From the first bit of spit and twig to her two babies' first flight. Just a stunning nature experience right in our own backyard. We had lots of fuschias then with the perfect nectar for her.

    Female Hummingbirds are single Mothers. They have a one night stand with a stranger male sperm donor. Then, the female is left to do everything, including building a home, birthing, caring for her offspring and teaching them to be independent. Diligent and devoted, and fierce in fighting off foes much larger than she is, the female hummingbird is a wonder.

    Is anyone following the Decorah eagles?

    Love & Light,

    Decorah eagles (Mom seems to be on husband #3). Just now all I'm seeing is snow but according to the Website it's almost time for an egg:

    The Audubon Society has a video that could be called Great Moments from the 2018 Birdcams:

    This is the Sauces Bald Eagle cam on the Channel Islands. I think I got a glimpse of an egg she's sitting on while munching on the remains of a bird. This camera switches back and forth from the live feed to a highlights video. When it's on the highlights, if you place your cursor in the upper right corner of the screen, a "refresh feed" icon will appear. Click it and it will go back to the live feed.

    This eagle is sitting on 3 eggs on another nest on Santa Cruz island, one of the Channel Islands off California's coast.

    Two eggs expected to hatch the first week of March, in this Great Horned Owl nest in San Francisco. These owls hijacked this nest from a pair of hawks!

    These birds are truly beautiful and huge. I saw one sitting in our oak tree once, with it's back to me, and I thought it was a large cat until it swiveled it's head around and looked at me with big gold eyes! Then it spread it's huge wings and silently glided away. The "horn" feathers on these owls look just like cat ears from behind!

    It's neat to "be" right there in the nest.

    Another California hummingbird nest with 2 recently laid eggs. The hummingbird nest cam I had posted previously had 2 eggs, but one wasn't viable. The chick in that nest has grown and looks like a young bird now instead of a little pink wrinkly thing. It all happens so fast you can miss it easily.

    With Bella's nest you can watch the whole cycle. Love to watch this tiny bird wiggle around in her nest as she rotates her eggs with her feet.
