Welcome to the 2013/2014 season of the Victoria , BC Hummingbird Nest

Thank you Eric Pittman for this cam and thank you HWF for featuring it on your website .. along with a nest thread where we can post our observations, scaps and videos.........giving us an interesting look into the lives of one of our smaller birds...

FaceBook...HERE

Link to 2012/ 2013 Nest thread..HERE

Eric Pittman has been recording several families of Anna’s Hummingbirds in Victoria, British Columbia, including Sugar, Tweet and Fluff. Their nests are all located in several of the trees in Erics beautiful yard.....Their nesting season is from December to July. During that time period the female will lay two eggs almost every six weeks. In fact, when one batch of chicks gets too large for her to sit on, she will make another nest and lay another two eggs and she sits on those while still feeding her nearly fledged chicks! 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...



This thread is for the observations, scaps, videos of the hummingbirds.... No enhanced scaps and please only three smileys per post.... thank you and enjoy !....

.As a courtesy to viewers with slower internet connections, please limit the pictures in each post to no more than a total of 150,000 bytes (150KB), and please do not post animations (though it's fine to post a link to them). To avoid horizontal scrolling, please do not post pictures that are more than 500 pixels wide - though it's fine to post a 500-pixel-wide thumbnail that clicks to a much larger picture. The forum attachment software conveniently handles that task - so you can attach larger pictures, and a properly-sized clickable image will appear in your post. The preferred format for pictures is JPEG (.jpg), and three 500-pixel-wide JPEGs should be under the 150KB limit.
