Hummers Revisited

video

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.

  1. Hello Amy:
    You sound like our kind of people, we have 4 hummer feeders around our house and we learned early to keep them out of view of each other. If we didn’t, a male would try to dominate all he could see! We also have several deer that come to visit each winter, they like to nibble the tops off of Jo’s young maple trees that we planted. But they haven’t come around as much as we would like, I guess it’s because the lumber Co. has been doing a lot of cutting around us. A few still make an appearance anyway.
    You have a nice day, and you have a standing invitation to visit my blog any time. Feel free to leave a comment….
