Bees, Hummingbirds, Road Runners... and more!
Here are a few videos taken at our Palm Springs property. Enjoy!
Hummingbirds: They grow up so quickly 🐣 I have been documenting the hummingbird nest just outside our bedroom slider: from egg to hatchling to nestling to fledgling to first flight 🤗 This adorable little peanut is still living in our yard and drinking from the hummingbird feeder‘s. Fun facts about hummingbirds:
• Hummingbird eggs are about the size of navy beans.
• Most females lay two eggs, which they incubate for 15 to 18 days.
• Juvenile hummingbirds fledge (leave the nest) 18 to 28 days after hatching.
• Baby hummingbirds are fed every 20 to 30 minutes from dawn until dusk.
Road Runners: We were excited to find a nesting pair of roadrunners in a hidden corner of our yard. The first roadrunner in the video is the female and the second is the male.
Some fun facts about roadrunners: they sometimes eat rattlesnakes, mate for life, can run up to speeds of 20 mph and live around eight years 🤗🌞🤗
Bees: This is a short video of the bee hive living in the post by our front door. Sometimes they swarm - over 10,000 of them! They must know we make mead wine 🤗🥂🥳
Fully Blooming Palo Verde Trees: These incredible trees burst into spectacular bloom for a few weeks each spring. This is a short tour of the trees at our Palm Springs, CA Property.
