Default We have lift-off!

OMG, I saw it! At 12:39 I was posting to another thread, when I heard a lot of chirping. Looked over at the nest cam window - there was a rush of wings, and they were off! Apparently Phoebe called, and they responded. Continued to hear chirping for a few minutes, so they were nearby. Now it's quiet, so they are off in the big world. Don't know if they will return to the nest at night, as some birds do, for a few days, or if that's it.

What a privilege to see this up close. Thanks, Bubbleoffplumb, for posting th link.

Huh? Just now (1:00 pm) I heard a whir of wings, looked over and there was Phoebe at the empty nest. She landed, poked the bottom of the nest a couple times with that loong beak, then took off right toward the camera. OK, I try my best not to anthropormorphize, but it sure looked like she came back to see if she left anything, and then took a bow before flying off.

OK. So is this the end of the season? Four to Five broods - is this the last one? Do Annas humminbirds migrate? Oh, yeah. Ask on the site. Don't have time right now, but I see there is a video of "The Big Moment" posted. Take off is right near the end of the long clip (at about 2h53s.). Enjoy!
