hummer

the only info from the nest cam site that I found:

Quote:

but found this online - a few sources seem to have the same info
Quote:
Hummingbird Life span

Most hummingbirds unfortunately die during their first year but, those that do survive that first year have an average hummingbird life span of 3 to 4 years.
The longest recorded hummingbird life span is from a female Broad-tailed Hummingbird that was tagged then recaptured 12 years later, making her at least 12 years old.
The oldest known surviving Ruby-throated Hummingbird is a banded bird that was 6 years 11 months old.
The oldest known hummingbird life span for a Rufous Hummingbird is a banded bird that was 8 years 1 month old.
from here:
Hummingbird Facts and Information

if I stop by for a visit later this evening, I'll ask.
Either the owner of the cam, or someone else who may know will probably answer - if they can.

good question.
she does look good for her age, no?

I never tire watching videos of hummers. Will they be sharing a video of the babies mid November?

hummer

the video is LIVE!!!!
can't see it now, 'cause it's dark there now.
click on the link in post #1 during the day and you'll see the Pheebe in all her egg turning glory.

-newer camera. seems to have better resolution (not that the spring time viewing was too shabby).
AND this time there's
sound!!!!
you can here the buzzzzz of her wings occasionally

so, to answer your question
yes - this same camera will still be rolling when they hatch
and hopefully we'll get to see first flight, too.
