Allen's Hummingbird Nest - Spring 2022

An Allen's Hummingbird nest from Oceanside California Spring 2022


This is Olive's old nest. Last year she laid eggs the beginning of January. So far I haven't seen any activity but I hope that will change soon. Some years she laid eggs the end of February. So I don’t know when for sure.

Well, it’s not looking good for any babies this year. We never had "winter". It’s been in the 70's, 80's and even 90's. Plus we look forward to a couple hours of rain in our winter months and we haven't had a drop. Looks like it’s going to be a long hot, dry summer again. It used to be 76 in July and now it’s 90 in February.
