It's nearly time to start watching Phoebe raise her next series of families in SoCal! Records show that she usually lays her first eggs of the new season during the last few days of October. Her timing is really great for those of you whose hummers have been departing...she really helps fill the void.

Thank you Parick,
Yes for those of us who had a less than enjoyable season overal and for those who have lost or will lose their hummers shortly Phoebe's timing is perfect.

I hope Phoebe has her eye on a beautiful male to help get her first family of the season under way! I don't know why I'm so anxious for this...guess I've missed her over these past several months.

I am a Phoebe fan myself and looking forward to the new season. I am always afraid that she might decide not to bother with a family this year..

Sigrid, I can't imagine a bird that averages 5 families per season not doing so again this season. And if something removes Phoebe from the scene, I wouldn't be surprised if one of her offspring takes over her territory.

Patrick, we heard the tail notch 'chirp' and watched a male Anna's displaying for a female in a tree while we were doing some clean up chores in the vegetable garden a couple of days ago. We know they are among the first species to nest but this seemed early to us this far north.

Do you still work nights? If so, we are supposed to have a couple of dry days this week so keep your eyes and ears open if you are outside during the day. BNB

BnB - last week I heard tail chirping going on in the backyard for quite awhile. Altho the object of the male's attention was a female (at least she was the only other hummer I spotted), I suspect that at this time of year it was a territorial display, rather than courtship. If it WAS a "Hey, foxy lady!" display, he was probably wasting his efforts - I can't imagine a female Anna's being receptive at this time of year.

Throughout the summer & fall I've seen/heard a lot of territorial tail chirping going on, often involving a 2nd male intruding into the alpha male's space.

Newsflash! This just in from Phoebe's Facebook! (Hee)

"I saw Phoebe checking out the rose bush briefly a couple times and she sat in the yucca for 45 minutes yesterday. So, I think she is reclaiming her territory. I haven't heard much mating activity yet, but hopefully she'll be nesting soon."

I just emailed Phoebe's site, asking whether there's any activity going on. Phoebs seems to be running late this season, so I told them we're anxious for news.
