Hummingbird Cam

For those of you who watch the Studio City Hummingbird Cam, what you see is temporary. The deck is being resurfaced, so the feeders will be reduced and even missing for a couple of days. The feeders have been moved to a place on the deck out of camera range, so the birds are feeding…

First Bee of the Season

I checked the webcam to see if I had to fill the feeders and I spotted a BEE drinking from one of the feeders. The days are getting hot here in Southern California and the bees no doubt need lots of water. I immediately filled a shallow dish with stones and water and hung it…

Many Black-Chinned Hummers This Year

Fewer Hummingbirds at the Feeders This Time of Year

There are lots of hummingbirds at the feeders, but not near as many as a couple of months ago. This happens every year around this time. The Anna’s that winter in Southern California have gone to feed on flowers further north. Also, this is nesting time here and the females spend much of their time…

Well, I’ve seen a few Hooded Orioles on the deck, but this is the first time I caught one on the webcam feeders. There were a couple of hummers on the cam when she flew on and they flew off. Well, there is plenty of food for all! Carole Studio City, CA

The webcam feeders are back up after the building fumigation and the regulars are starting to return to the restaurant. I left a few feeders up at ground lever where the temporary feeding area was located so any stragglers can find food. Now three species of birds are showing up at the feeders – Anna’s,…

The Restaurant is Temporarily Closed

Fumigation of the building is necessitating temporary closure of the highly-rated hummingbird restaurant. Their patio dining is closed, but fifteen feeders are set up for them at ground level. There is plenty of food for them during the weekend. The feeders will be filled with fresh food every day. The feeders are placed far enough…

I’m so excited to report that I’ve spotted my first Black-Chinned Hummingbird of the season. They’re back! I sat out there for an hour before I finally was able to capture that beautiful purple gorget. I hope to get much better ones in the future! Carole Studio City, CA
