Stress Relief

This is Phoebe, a Channel Island Allen (S.s. sedentarius) hummingbird in Orange County, California.    She has been laying 4 to 5 clutches each year for several years and her landlords have been broadcasting her nest since 2007.

Eggs were laid Jan. 2 & 4, 2010.    Two chicks hatched about 22 days ago and were named Storm and Sassy.    Unfortunately, Storm died after just a few days.    As you can see, Sassy is doing well.

FEBRUARY 18, 2010   Sassy was taken to Rehab today. She wasn't developing feathers as she should have been and needed better nutrition.    Phoebe may start another brood soon.
