Who is Phoebe?
Phoebe is a non-migratory Channel Islands Allen's Hummingbird (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allen's_Hummingbird). She builds her nests in a rose bush, in Orange County, CA and the nest is about the size of a golf ball, with eggs being about the size of a tic-tac candy. The nest is made of various plant material such as moss, lichens, leaves, plant fluff and other natural materials and spider webbing for elasticity and strength.
The season for nesting is October through May/early June, and Phoebe will lay four to five clutches per season. Two eggs are laid per clutch, they hatch after 17 days, and the chicks typically fly three to four weeks later. Phoebe will sometimes build a new nest, but frequently repairs old nests.
