More Birds? Can I Handle This?
OK. I think it's getting out of hand. But how can I resist?
I have now found live cams for 1.) a hummingbird nest; and 2.) a robin's nest.
It's entirely possible that I may not leave the house and may not do any housework or take any calls until summer. This could get ridiculous!
Of course I tried a picture or two off the screen. They are NOT good. Probably in the morning, when the light on them may be better. I don't even know where they are located. The robin seems to be on someone's porch or entryway. The hummer is in a tree. Both very politely allowed me to photograph their eggs. The robin has three, the hummer two. They fly away and return frequently.
I've tried lightening and/or darkening the photos, but it's really useless at this point. I won't post any more unless the lighting gets a lot better.
All I can say is, it's a good thing I'm retired. I really do not have a whole lot to occupy my time that is of any huge importance to anyone but myself. And I could just look at these little guys forever.
Even I will have to tear myself away from the computer and occasionally do something else, I'm sure. But for now, let me go a little crazy. I'll try not to bore you guys with them too often, but I may not get around to making too many comments for a while.
