Phoebe is an Allen’s hummingbird. She and her chick, Sassy, are nesting in an Orange County, Calif., rose bush. Be patient; it takes time to load. You may need to click “reload.” And, oh yes, lights out after dark:
Vodpod videos no longer available.
If you’re familiar with hummers, you’ll love this. If you’re not, understand that hummers aren’t much bigger than cicadas and their nests are about the size of a golf ball. Here in Colorado, the ones I’ve seen usually nest in pine trees, where the nests’ small size, outer covering of pine bark, and sheltering evergreen foliage make them almost impossible to spot.
My thanks to Manon for directing me to this wonderful site. Beats the heck out of CNN!
Did I mention I’m absolutely enthralled by this cam?
