Allen's Hummingbird Nest - Spring 2024 4th Clutch

Brook & Summer

An Allen's Hummingbird nest from Oceanside California Spring 2024


This HD camera streams live 24/7 with sound, so make sure you turn up your volume. You can also watch the nest at night thanks to the wonders of infrared technology, approved by The Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

This season brings you Olive, our beautiful year-round resident female Allen’s hummingbird, and her forth clutch of 2024. Her nest was originally built in 2012. Olive feeds from her own feeder near the nest and also frequents the two other feeders on camera. An extremely experienced mother, Olive caringly raises her chicks and teaches them all the survival skills they need to become successful adults.
