We are excited to re-introduce our
"Live Bird Cam Streaming"!
In our first year of streaming I built a bird box over the winter and successfully attracted a pair of Black-capped Chickadees who built a nest to start a family. They raised 6 healthy chicks and you can see the history from nest building to the day the chicks fledged the nest on our Nest Box Video page.
Last year in 2016 we had live streaming inside the nest box of Tree Swallows. They are beautiful birds who return year to year to our box. We will post the link to the captured video from our streaming camera when we upload it.
Our Live Streaming will Return!
Our Live Streaming Page will return in the Spring 2017 as the Chickadees have started their nest building chores.
You can check our Streaming Page often to watch this entertaining spectacle of nature.

Baby Hummingbird Video
by Jim White
This "Baby Hummingbird Video" is special because we get a chance to see the innocence of youth.
(Technically, babies in the nest can't fly, these are juvenile hummingbirds when they first leave the nest and visit our feeders.)
They are a little wary but will tolerate us being close to a hummingbird feeder.
Soon, though they will experience the buzz and warning dives of the dominant male, shooing them away from their guarded feeders.
The young ruby-throated males do not yet have their gorgeous, iridescent red gorget.
Some may show a few red throat feathers at their neck by summer's end.
They will develop their adult male plumage during their first tropical winter season.
