Soon To Be Live!

Our Live Streaming BirdCam!

Go Inside a Tree Swallow Nest Box!

Last year we successfully attracted a pair of Chickadees to our BirdCam nest box and we witnessed one of those "Wonders of Nature"!

We watched as they claimed the box, built a nest, laid the eggs, watched them hatch and grow until they fledged the nest!

You can see a condensed video that I put together of the whole time period here.

We will soon be live again inside a Tree Swallow nest box.

They just started to claim the nest box which holds our streaming BirdCam inside.

The temperatures have been below average but they should start their nest building chores any day now when the weather warms up!

Check the page often to witness the progression of this entertaining spectable Here!

The Hummingbird Nest!

Can You Imagine One!

Hummingbird nests are truly incredible!

They can be as tiny as a walnut shell but marvelously constructed.

There are many interesting facts about them, one being that they have elastic sides that stretch as the babies grow!
