Monday Bird Nest Update

Not much to report these days. Many little ones have fledged. In Canada, a few of the live cams are having lens trouble. They have clouded up.


What remains clearly visible are two nests. One is an eagles' nest in Canada - in Delta, B.C. This is the smallest of the eagles' nests. There was one egg, and since that one hatched, another chick was placed in the nest, and Mom is raising two chicks. They are pretty darned cute!



The other I can still tell you about is the hummingbird nest. Someone has named these birds. Mama is Phoebe and baby is Jewel.




And that's about it for today.



In our part of the world, the heat is gone for the present, and it is rainy. They tell us it will continue to rain the rest of the week, off and on. I guess that's a good thing for me. My garden is seeded. I have both flowers and vegetables in some containers on my back deck. No doubt they can all use the rain, and it saves me getting out there early in the morning before the heat sets in.

At least they turned the wide-view Hornby camera back on. Must be frustrating for the scientists even more than the general viewers like us why the lens gets dirty. I'm still rooting for that single chick!

Oh, the birds just get cuter with every photo you post! And how beautiful those pink flowers are! Sorry about the rain -- coming from Seattle, I wouldn't wish that on anyone right now! But we're having some lovely days, so I'll quit complaining! Have a great week, Bobbie!

I love seeing the babies

I'm find relief in the cool, for some reason warmer weather is getting to me this season - maybe it's my feverish personality ;)

and I do prefer nature watering things -

I was sent a live web cam from Canada but I must have gotten rid of it. At one time it showed the mom taking a fish back to the nest. It was great. I was hoping to send it to you but. . .

Jewel is a perfect name for hummingbirds.

The heat may have gone from your part of the world but we've really got a strong dose of it here mixed in with volcanic vog. Yuck!

Good luck with your garden.

Thanks anyway, Ralph. Nice of you to try.

I love seeing baby birds - or baby animals of any type, for that matter.

Your petunias are lovely.
