On this gray rainy/snowy afternoon I thought it might be nice to look at the hummingbird videos I took this fall before they all migrated. They left for warmer climes on September 12, 2007. Since we had just moved in on August 1, I hadn't had much time to feed them before they left but I had two feeders going all the time and the action was jumpin' (or should I say buzzin'?)
We only have Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds in our area. I had mostly juvenile males and females but once in a while a mature male would show up and dazzle us with his jeweled throat.
Hummingbirds are little miracles of nature. How can something so little be so feisty and tough? Rock on, little hummers...rock on.
