Hey Folks,
Once again we have a nest just outside TG Central. There was one egg on Monday, Feb. 15, and a second one three days later. Right now Mama is mostly sitting on the eggs and running for food. I will try to keep the stream here and update occasionally as the url may change from time to time. I will not keep it running 24/7, which is why it may change every day. Have a look at times and enjoy.

Neil

Hi Folks,

The eggs hatched on March 1, or possibly the day before. And since I don't keep the stream running 24/7, the URL will change daily. I will try to keep the latest link at the top of this thread. It should be accessible through this channel as well-

Totally Guitars International Guitar Camp

Feel free to pass this on to any family or friends who might enjoy the show.

The eggs hatched last Monday (March 1) and Mama now only comes by with food and to huddle down for the night.

Congratulations Mrs. C on the new babies. They seem very sweet... and hungry! Hope to see them out and about soon.

Here are the next few days.

Part 3 starts on Wednesday March 10 and goes up to Saturday morning March 13. Mama stays away at night but seems to start feeding them every 15-20 minutes as day breaks. By the end you'll see them stretch their little wings, wrestle for room in the nest, and even pop up a head and look around.
At one point I had to clean off the camera lens as they send out little missiles regularly.

Part 4 covers another couple days, Saturday, March 13-Tuesday, March 16. Most of these scenes are Mama feeding after grabbing a little nectar from our bird of paradise plant in the front yard. They are starting to stretch their wings a little more and there will some of that in Part 5, coming along in a few days.

Such precious little babies, look just like their mama. Getting big, may be leaving the nest soon.

Part 5 covers just 2 days, Wednesday and Thursday March 17-18, in about 10 minutes. It is just highlights of feeding, jostling for space, and flapping their wings. Not much lift yet but they get bigger and stronger every day.
