Thousands of viewers on fledge watch this week

A female Allen's hummingbird has nested in the same Irvine courtyard for many years.

     Log on to the Live Hummingbird Webcam to view the latest two chicks fledge from the crowded nest.  The two chicks, which hatched on Dec. 10 & 11,  are already testing their wings for their first flight.  Listed as one of the top birding sites, this prolific female Allen's hummingbird has captured the hearts of thousands across the globe.  You can usually view a clip of the lift off on YouTube in case you miss it.
