Quote from Joe Dellwo: 2010
"Phoebe is a Channel Island Allen (S.s. sedentarius) hummingbird. Her nest is located in Orange County, California..She has been laying 4 to 5 clutches each year for several years now... I've been recording her nest for the past two years..
_____________________________


Phoebe's nesting season is from October to June.. her clutches consist of two eggs almost every six weeks.. Phoebe has 5 nests located in the host's front courtyard in a rose bush .. she will often repair one of them when one batch of chicks gets too big for her to sit on going back and forth to feed them and will have it ready for her next clutch... sometimes she has been known to lay her eggs before the other chicks fledge. Female hummingbirds do not let male hummingbirds near a nest because the male hummingbird's bright colors might alert predators in the nest area..male hummingbirds will also attack a female hummingbird that enters his territory that he has not mated with...after the female mates with him, she will be allowed to roam his territory without too much worry...
Thank you to Pungh for this cam and the opportunity to view and learn about these beautiful birds..

Mr Pungh posted this on this on Facebook today.....
"I saw Phoebe checking out the rose bush briefly a couple times and she sat in the yucca for 45 minutes yesterday. So, I think she is reclaiming her territory. I haven't heard much mating activity yet, but hopefully she'll be nesting soon."
We miss you Phoebe, my calendar says it's time Clapping
Hummer hugs Bev and Carolyn, I can hardly wait.
btw: Congrats Carolyn on the Topic Assistant, you are going to be great at it, I love your writing Smile
