HUMMINGBIRDS LIVE! From my front porch to you 24/7! Enjoy watching all the hummingbirds that I have at my home here in Terre Haute, Indiana. You don't have to wait long it see any of the birds for they are very active. They spend most of the day flying in and out as they feed. The evening time is the best time to tune in as they all fight to get their last feeding in before they head to roost for the night. I estimate roughly 15 to 20 hummingbirds live in the evergreen tree that is out of frame to the left of your screen. There is no sound due to the location of the camera. I will keep this feed live till they all have headed south for the winter. Thank you for watching!
UPDATE: 6/15/17 Activity at my feeders have really picked up over the last month. I estimate roughly 10 birds have called my feeder’s home for the summer. I have a few males that like to chase the females away from the feeders so you will almost always see a bird when you tune in. The majority of the birds I have seen are female this year so we are hoping to see lots of yearlings this year. Due to the aggressiveness of the males, I placed a feeder in my back yard that is not on camera to help reduce the aggressiveness of the males. When things pick up a little more, I will place my third feeder out back and move my other larger one back up front where you will be able to see it on camera.
UPDATE: 5/1/17 Welcome back! The hummingbirds have arrived! Things are pretty quiet still as the weather has been cool to start this spring. I look for activity to pick up in the coming weeks so make sure to stop in from time to time. Right now, the best viewing times are in the early morning at day break and in the evening just before dusk. I have currently seen one male and one female feeding at my feeder. As activity picks up, I will add more feeders in hopes of having just as many birds that I had last year. At the end of the summer last year, I estimated roughly 40 birds were feeding at my feeders. I was feeding about 10 to 12 cups of nectar per day. If we are lucky, I hope we will have just as much activity as last year! Thank you for viewing and enjoy!
UPDATE: 9/24/16 Thank you to all who have tuned in to watch my hummingbird cam live feed. It has been fun watching these little birds this year. All but 1 or 2 have gone south for the winter. Due to the lack in activity at my feeder, I am taking the feed down today. I hope to come back next year and stream live all summer long while the hummingbirds are here. Please check back next summer for the live stream and I will try to remember to post updates. Thanks again!
UPDATE: 9/19/16 My internet connection has been in and out over the last couple of days so if the feed is down, please check back later. The activity has been about the same since my last update. There has been one bird hanging around the feeder that keeps running others off so I haven't been able to get a count of how many birds are still around. I will continue to keep the feed live for the rest of this week and will give an update this coming weekend as to when the feed will end for the year. Thank you for viewing!
UPDATE: 9/15/16 It’s that time of year again where the local hummingbirds have begun to head south for the winter. The activity at my feeders has almost come to a stop. I have noticed that there are about 5 or 6 birds that are still around. I was feeding roughly 8 to 10 cups a day to these little guys and now I am down to less than half a cup a week. I will continue to keep the feed live for a couple more weeks in hopes that a few migrators will stop in for a feeding.
