Hummingbird nest on my porch with chicks! (1 Viewer)

Hey yall-

I have a hummingbird on my porch for the 2nd year (year 1 the babies did not live and she abandoned) and the nest has at least one chick this year! I can see the nest right outside of my window so I got to know her patterns. While she was away, and the chicks were not present yet, I set up a wyze cam so I can watch her and track progress whenever I want. The last new nights I have noticed that she is not sleeping in her nest. It seems like she is constantly annoyed by getting jabbed by the chicks beak so maybe she needs a break and sleeps somewhere else. I thought I would post here and see if anyone has any interest in seeing some pics and video.

Hi there Scottie and a warm welcome to you from those of us on BirdForum :)

It's great to have such a convenient view of these hummers and I hope it all turns out well for you and for us :)
