Hello, the hummingbirds are back!

Male bright red neck, Ruby Throated made a dive bomb at the empty feeder yesterday evening. Filled the feeder up and today the dude is having a ball. These birds are the coolest. Feeder is at a corner of the deck, the bird gets so close to me as I was standing maybe 2 feet you can hear the humm and chirps.

Nice

Every year they nest on top of our wind chime. Pretty neat little things. They get pissed when I head out to grill.

This was taken last year. When they arive they ARIVE!


Based on one feeder the estimate is over 70 birds feeding. I have seen 25 or so at one time on the feeder.

Rustic - that is an amazing photo. At first glance I just saw the one bird, but looking again saw just how many were at the feeder. Amazing!
