I just had to share this link with you all. It will take you to a hummingbird nest that currently has two egg's in it (April 1st) and this is not an April fools joke.

From that page you and check out so many other webcams to watch other wildlife living as they do in the wild. It's so cool to be able to enjoy this right from your home!

ENJOY! :-)

Just so you don't miss it.....look at the top right corner of the screen shot and you will see a camera. If you click on that camera it will actually take a photo of what you are viewing. You then can email it to yourself or to others and I believe you also can post it on your Facebook page. It's really cool! Look below the screen and you will see so many other webcams you can watch also. DO ENJOY!!!

I loved it! Those babies are so dang cute, they had me smilin' from ear to ear. I thought my face would crack from all that smilin'.

I've never seen baby hummingbirds before. Judging from Bella, they seem to be great at parenting.

I'm so glad you enjoyed them. Watching them grow will be cool. There are so many other animals and sites to check out too. Did you scroll down to see what other webcams you can visit? I love the fact that I can check out the Northern Lights and watch bears trying to catch salmon, babie hummingbirds and panda's in China, all from my computer at home in seconds! It's pretty cool!

One of the two hummingbird nests actually has two babies that look like they are ready to leave the nest. In fact one of them is on the nest and the other is on a branch being fed by it's mother.

The other nest still has tiny babies.

I hope you have visited some of these sites and enjoyed taking photos too! If you have not visited please refer to the link I posted at the very beginning of this topic. You are in for a treat! :-)

The picture's all black !

Oh well. It figures. It gets dark in a hummingbird's nest late at night. LOL !

I've watched a humming bird nest before, but never peeked inside. I guess I'll check it out tomorrow.

I was trimming a large bird of paradise bush today, and a hummingbird came up and started feeding off the flowers. I was surprised. I didn't know that bird of paradise flowers had nectar that humming birds could drink. It was interesting to watch the bird feed off the bird shaped flowers, which are several times larger than the hummingbird itself.

I hope to have my camera handy the next time.

I don't know what time you checked in but it would be dark at night. They don't supply any artificial lighting. We wouldn't want to disturb them. When you do go on the site though be sure to take a photo with the camera that is on the right hand side of the screen! You can email the shot to yourself or others and put it on Facebook if you're a member. The hummer babies are growing pretty quickly.

OH my gosh I just captured a cute shot of the mother hummer feeding the babies! Anyone else get good shots?

I wish I could post one of the shots here! Those babies are growing fast! It almost looks like they can barely fit in the nest!

Hummingbird babies are gone and I see the mother on her nest again. I wonder if there are eggs under her. If you happen to catch her off the nest please post what you see.

I hope I'm not the only one enjoying the site!

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
