   BirdsNest  Hagar has had a bad run with the incubator this Spring, eggs just dying in shell, or not fertile or something. He has been hatching eggs forever and this is the first time he's been "skunked".Hagar has hatched all manner of parrot eggs from Macaws and Cockatoos to Lories with great success. Being who he is he has continued putting eggs in it, low and behold, one Aracauna chick hatched. One chick is a major pain to care for, it gets lonely and won't eat properly. So we bought 6 Coturnix quail to put with it. They are so cute and they taught the new chick how to eat, they are amazing to watch. It is our conclusion that the Winter was so bad it wreaked havoc with fertility rates in everyone's eggs....a guy we talked to had two incubators with over 70 eggs fail to hatch.

   Mildred  One of my neighbors always had new nests and babies every year. After a few years the same Costas hummingbirds would return and he would sit on the patio with a small cup of nectar and the hummers would come for a snack. The entire community was mesmerized with each new photo that was posted on our online bulletin board. These little guys are real jewels.

   Surfhut  Think I've posted about this before. Here goes again. When I lived in SoCal, a neighbor 2 doors down had a 50' long deck, with hummingbird feeders hanging all along the way. They rarely had to close the door because the weather was great. Those little birds flew in and out of their house. Loved going over for a visit and having a hummingbird rest on my shoulder for a bit.

   Ole buzzard  I forgot to go back and check that since early March when the last egg was laid!

   Mildred  Checked this a few times and only saw the adult. Today I finally got to see the babies. This is truly special. How many babies are in the nest? There is always one baby who does more than the others. Today I thought that one was going over the edge but it stepped back just in time.

   Ole buzzard  There are three eaglets at this time. True to form, there will always one chick that is dominant, and the parents will have to be diligent enough to keep that one from taking all the food from the others.

   Mildred  I've been checking in on these guys periodically. The babies are getting big. Today people were walking and playing below and I don't think they knew the eagles were up there. I watched as the adult fed the babies. What a treat! It was really windy but everyone is safe.

   Balogreene  Okay, today at work, I was writing about the wonders of technology that a piece of equipment could rotate 360 degrees. Did you see that owl toward the beginning? That wasn't technology, that was G-d. Amazing.
