This is, unfortunately, not a live cam.
Eric says that, since Tweet, he has been able to film two hummingbirds.

Blossom, with her only chick Precious, who flew last Thursday.
And now Rosebud, with her two chicks.

He is able to get to the grove where the nest is, each day to film, and play that as a
loop throughout the day.

The grove is at the bottom of Hummingbird Hill and has no power source - so no
live broadcast can be set up!

He is hoping to keep us more up-to-date - meanwhile, enjoy your hummingbird fix Grin

And Thank you, Eric, for your efforts to record these fascinating birds Grin

Hi Folks
I have now set up the nest cam on Fluff again. Her previous chicks just fledged and she is now sitting on two eggs. Her chicks are still being fed by her and you may hear or see them as they are both within 25 ft of her all the time right now. Her eggs were laid about May 12, 2011.

Fluff is so sweet incubating her eggs

Eric posted the eggs were laid around May 12.
..



So i am guessing here.... Watch for a hatch in 16-18 days.. so that would be around May 28 to May 30.. give or take a few days...
