My sister-in-law has the most amazing hummingbird flock in Washington as they do at the Scout Ranch in New Mexico. You think a Wasp is after you and you are getting dive bombed on the way to the feeder. We get a few token one's here. It is so neat to see them finally land.

We camped outside Estes Park about 4 years ago. The campground sold hummingbird feeders; we bought one and had a hummingbird adopt it for the several days we stayed there. We got the biggest kick out of watching him defend that feeder from other hummingbirds. I did not realize how aggressive they could be.

My nephew from Dubuque called to say his class was following the hatch.

P.S. Weather good, might take a bike ride out to it. About 35 minutes no one in your way. We start at Dunnings Springs. Our home.

You can probably get closer that way. We drove past it a week ago but could only see where it was. It looked like it was in someone's backyard.
Can you imagine having something like that in your yard? You would not be picking up just sticks and nuts but probably what is left of the meals. You would also not be able to have small dogs or cats outside. They might end up as the eaglet's supper.

A second egg hatched. I could only see fur and the broken egg, but it looked like it was moving.

It is in someone's yard. Birds don't poo in the nest either.

The lunch special today looks like a ground hog. So far the 3rd egg hasn't hatched. I read that the 3rd chick rarely flies. I did notice one year when there were 3 that the 3rd was considerably smaller.

Yesterday was a nail-biter when Dad accidentally threw the oldest eaglet outside the bowl of the nest. Then Mom arrived and saved him. You could almost hear her say, "What did you do?!" to the father when she got back. I admit that I was yelling encouragement at the baby as it tried to crawl back in and at the father who seemed unable to figure out how to save it. I yelled when Mom got the job done.
Then I laughed until I cried when I watched the babies fight over a piece of fish. Two bobbleheads going back and forth in a tug-of-war.

I have also been watching this hummingbird nest: http://www.ustream.tv/hummingbirdnestcam Needless to say, schoolwork is getting hard to get done.

We have been watching for the last 24 hours, there are sessions that are quite riveting. We have kept the eagle cam video on the computer screen for constant viewing. Its been an interesting, non-strenuous activity to engage in while the DH and I are assigned to sick bay.... hubby with pneumonia and me with badly sprained foot.

This is all pretty amazing. I spent my teenage years trout fishing just below that tree and know the area well. Today when I got in to work in Oak Park, IL, I found the superintendent's secretary watching, too! She found out about it at church yesterday. My folks are also watching in a retirement housing unit just north of Decorah, IA. Lots of people watching and worrying over these young chicks.

Kevin:

I wonder about the 3rd egg. I read that the 3rd hatchling never flies most likely due to lack of food. I watched one year when there were three and the 3rd one was considerably smaller most likely due to a late birth and competion for food with the older babies.

I showed my class tonight. The one that Kevin calls "Bart," as in Simpson, popped his head out from under Mom like he was tired of being squashed.
The latest addition to the menu had us puzzled at the university. My cousin nailed it though, a muskrat.
