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...
_________________
____________


Phoebe's usual 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..

We do not use enhanced scaps ....here is link for them.. you may however post the link to them on this thread.

Hi Friends.. I saw this on Phoebe Allens Hummingbird face book.. posted by Pungh

Phoebe Allens Hummingbird Webcam....
Tuesday
I haven't heard any mating displays yet, and no nest activity. She's been sitting at the top of a palm tree by the rose bush a lot, with a shotgun across her knee, keeping an eye on her territory and on the males on the other side of the house.


Looking forward to another season with Phoebe and all our friends that post and visit here...Wub

ADDED.. Wed.Oct. 24, 2012..

Just for your info....the cam came on line last year Nov.13., 2011.
