Baby Hummingbirds

We've been waiting two weeks and finally the hummingbirds have hatched. Here's a photo and a video of the mother feeding.

Spotted Towhee

Two Spotted Towhees

The spotted towhees have been daily visitors to our home. They also are getting used to us and come by if we are nearby. I think the sunflower seed helps.

Hummingbird at Nest (video)

We set up a webcam for the hummingbird nest. Here's a video clip of the hummingbird returning and adding to the nest. It's on both flickr (top) and YouTube(lower) since they one may not work on some devices

Allen's Hummingbird on Nest

We've seen a few hummingbird nests on our property and we are following this one closely since it's visible through a window.

Mike set up the camera on a tripod about 20 feet away and then uses a remote control to take photos from inside without disturbing the nest.

If all goes well, we hope to see a baby or two within the next ten days or so.
