Just four days into the new year, two of Ustream’s animal broadcasters welcomed three new additions. Southwest Florida Eagle Cam welcome two eaglets on January 1 and 3 (see blog post here), and early this morning, Hummingbird Nest Cam welcomed egg #1 into the world. The baby hummingbird was named Sandy in honor of the victims of Hurricane Sandy and the Sandy Hook shootings.
Sandy’s mom, Phoebe Allens, is a non-migratory Channel Islands Allens Hummingbird from Orange County, California. This stunning HD cam has been on Ustream since 2009 and has seen Phoebe give life to dozens of new hummingbirds. Hatch watch continues on Sandy’s sibling, egg #2.
Below, watch Phoebe feed Sandy her first meal and join Hummingbird Nest Cam live for hatch watch on egg #2. Learn more about Phoebe on her website here.
