Someone on Facebook asked if there was any sign of Phoebe in the yard this week. Mr Pungh replied...
" Not much. Just the occasional visit. Of course I probably miss most visits. No nesting activity though."
So we are still waiting......Whistling

HI Gail and Phoebe Friends

Pungh posted this on facebook.. Oct. 29. 2011.

Non-update: Still no sign of nesting or mating behaviour. Phoebe still visits occasionally to hunt in the yard. I really worry that they have been disrupted by the endless construction 2 doors down. Power saws and hammering from 8am til dusk for several weeks now and jack hammers before that. I'm still hoping though. I know in the past she would start in early November, but recently it has been October. I will keep you updated.

Will fingers crossed that Phoebe is just having an extended vacation...

Phoebe Allens Hummingbird Webcam She used to start in November. But I wasn't keeping track back then. I'm still crossing my fingers.

Then shortly after this was posted by another member..

"She's never started this late has she?"

Hi Gail and all Phoebe Friends.. Exciting News...Nodding yes

Tuesday .. Nov. 8, 2011.


Update by Pungh from Facebook

Phoebe Allens Hummingbird Webcam
Phoebe has begun nest construction. Actually, she's working on TWO nests. For a few days she's been inspecting and landing on last season's nests several times a day. This morning, she zipped in and worked on a nest. Then she zipped in and worked on another. Then the other. She did that a half dozen times before I had to leave. Hopefully, she'll make up her mind soon so I'll know where to put the camera.


I will keep checking for further updates ...

Update from Mr. Pungh Nov 10 from Facebook
"There are 3 intact nests from last season. Here's a photo I took in January. On Tuesday she was alternating between the top 2 nests in the picture. This morning she was performing repairs on all 3 nests (top 3 in photo). As soon as she picks a mate she should get busy working on one nest."

Phoebe has been busy all day working on a single nest. I have everything ready and will try to get cam up tonight. On a related note... why does it always rain when I want to set up the camera.
