If your life is for the birds, you might as well share it with them. Let's talk birding in Southern California.

Phoebe's fledge watch begins July 13
See the hummingbird nest cam at phoebeallens.com.
Phoebe is at it again. She has two nestlings, her fifth clutch of the season. Her eggs hatched on 6/22 and 6/23. She lost her last two clutches to predators. Since then, the homeowner has gone to great lengths to protect the nest. Let's hope she gets to fledge two babies this time. Watch for fledging in 21-28 days. After this clutch, she will likely take a break until November. Allen hummingbirds are year-round residents in Southern California.
