Hummingbird Cam

Some of you may already follow Phoebe the hummingbird, but if you haven't seen her yet, you may want to check this out.

She is in the process of building another nest right now.

Thanks for the link. That was really interesting. I once saw a hummingbird nest in a tree. It was smaller than my teacup.

I plan to watch this tomorrow at work! Love hummingbirds. Verizon and their stupid limited gigabytes, not so much.

I was in a park in Tacoma. There was a humming bird defending her nest just like in the video. A crowd started to gather to watch. All of a sudden everyone was applauding. She won! I doubt if she knew what the applause was for. But that didn't matter. What surprised me was that she would build a nest in a park where there were a lot of people all the time. I guess she knew what she was doing. Everyone was so protective of that area. Don't get to close to the tree was the admonition you heard all the time. Just stand here and watch.
