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.
