|This female Allen's hummingbird, nicknamed Phoebe, is the star of a popular live Webcam.|
Nesting season for these tiny birds runs October through early June. The female builds the nest, sits on the eggs and cares for the chicks without assistance from the male. A female hummingbird has four or five clutches a season. She typically lays two eggs per clutch, though not all eggs are viable and many chicks do not survive.
