Live animal cams are popping up on Ustream like crazy. So many people love that they can share the wildlife in their yard with the entire world. It’s great for people of all ages to have the opportunity to join in on the amazing wonders. I may not have deer, bears, eagles, or hawks coming into my yard but, I can pop over to see them in other peoples areas.
One of my favorite cams is the Humming Bird cams. I do have these sweet little birds in my own yard but, I sure don’t have a nest that I can watch. In fact out of all my years of watching the little hummys come and feed, I had never been able to see eggs being hatched or the baby peeps. Now, no problem, I just go to a cam site and watch them up close.
Today I found another hummingbird cam. This one is also in Southern California and they say they are right down the road from the Phoebe Allens Humming Bird Nest. So, to be sure that you are getting your fill of adorable humming birds you will want to go over and check out Emma the Hummingbirds Nest. I am watching it as I write this and I can say, the view is GREAT! You can see how wonderful she is and even the details of her nest. She just flew off for a moment and I can see an EGG! Yes, I can see it laying in her nest. From what I read, she laid 1 or 2 eggs on May 1, 2011!
Emma’s nest really brings the phrase Bird on a Wire to reality. It looks like it would start swinging around if they got a good wind but, I know that the nest is ok, it just looks scary. Us humans are so over protective sometimes. Emma has had babies before and she knows what she is doing when it comes to nest safety.
When you go to see the hummingbird cam they do have the chat on most times. Please take note of their rules for participating. The people bringing you the chance to see this wonderful part of nature should be applauded not hassled with disrespect.
Go ahead over to check it out. Be sure to take the kids as this is a wonderful way for them to be introduced to nature.
