Great site! Thanks for sharing it. Looks like there's some cracks in the egg closest to the camera.

Yea. I guess the momma left for almost 2 hours and came back. Now she left again almost 30 minutes ago. Everybody on the chat is freaking out!

Phoebe! Isn't she great? She has quite a fan base.

I know that cam well, and was one of the sobbing masses a few weeks ago when her chick Sassy didn't make it. Sassy's brother Storm had passed a few weeks earlier, so when they took Sassy to the rehab, everyone had hoped she would make it, but...

I've got my fingers crossed for these next two little tic-tacs. Hard to believe that nest is the size of golf ball!

There's also another hummingbird, Buzzie. Her babies, Zipper and Velcro, fledged just this afternoon, about three hours ago California time. I was so upset that I missed it. I had gone for my afternoon walk and when I came back, they had fledged. You can see the video of them fledging here:

Zipper and Velcro Say Goodbye, Zipper fledged @ 3:26 p.m. Veclro fledged @ 3:27 p.m. Robcam1 on USTREAM. Birds (http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/5477143 - broken link)

Ummm, why yes. I get excited when people talk about birds.

Yesterday she chased a lizard away. But he's back--RIGHT NOW--and she's not there. Nature's daytime drama!

Did you see this one of an African Grey parrot?

[URL="http://www.ustream.tv/channel/Watch-the-Birdie"]Watch the Birdie on USTREAM: Bibi is a 4-year-old African Grey Parrot that speaks 20 languages, with a vocabulary of well over 300 words. She can also sing...[/URL]

Bibi has been talking all morning. "It's purple. It's purple. Hello. What's your name? *Honk honk.* You want some water? It's PURPLE! Hello. Did you eat the cracker? Say hello. What's your name? It's red. What shape? Circle. Say hello, Bibi. Take a bath? Happy birthday. Do you wanna step up? What's that? IT'S PURPLE! Green pepper. Tomato soup. Tortilla? Do you wanna take a shower? I'll miss you. Buh-bye. See you soon. TOMATO SOUP!"

Crack me up!
