Okay, we don’t want to divide our attention among too many animals (or do we?), but reader “rcs” has called our attention to an awesome HummingbirdCam. It’s in southern California, and is trained on the nest of an Allen’s hummingbird (Selasphorus sasin) who produced two chicks today.
You’ll have to watch a short commercial, but it’s well worth it. Go to the site facts to see how remarkably small the nest is, and where they’ve placed the camera. I’ve just watched the mother feeding her brood.
The babies are sort of bloblike at this early stage.
The nest is in a rosebush, low to the ground. Danger of predators!
Maybe it’s not too onerous to watch both eagles and hummingbirds. . .
