I couldn’t resist putting my GoPro cam up on a monopod secured to a ladder so as to get a different nest-level perspective on the mother hummingbird during a feeding session with her two nestlings. I was happy to see that while the camera’s location about a foot from the nest drew the attention of the mother, it didn’t create a deterrent. Nevertheless, I took it down immediately and won’t risk it becoming one at this stage… although I might film again from this angle as the chicks (fingers crossed) get closer to fledging.
