GORGEOUS photos! How wonderful to have hummingbirds visiting throughout the day. We have had 2 feeders filled with nectar for a while now ~ I hope they find our garden soon.
What a handsome couple. I hope they nest in your garden too. What great pictures you could get.He looks like he needs a napkin in the first photo. I little left over blossom on his bill.
Aren't they sweet? I absolutely love them. And you describe them to a T. The male is bold and the female skitterish. Our rest on my clothesline and then come to the feeder.I once found a nest in the hedge, but it was in the fall. I am not sure, but it was so tiny, I think it might have been a hummer's.Flying jewels - aren't they?
Dear Deb,Thanks I was pleased with these pictures. He is a handsome little guy! I hope the Hummers find you soon too. There was a few here in early May and than a week went by with out a trace of them. Now I have been seeing two males and no females. It seems to be a strange Hummingbird year!Sherry
Dear Lisa,Mr. Hummer does appear to have a bit of blossom on his bill!I do love the Hummingbirds!Sherry
Dear Wendy,They are flying jewels! So sweet too. I love their little chatter.I bet you did find a Hummers nest.I have never seen a nest in person. After thiry years of feeding them I think it is time for them to nest in my gardens!LOLSherry
I always love seeing the hummingbirds up close like this! Bravo
These photos are such a treat! How beautiful.I was mourning the fact that the Indian Mynah birds have frightened away all the lovely little native birds that used to come to visit our Grevilleas. I miss them so.
Hi Tom,I was thinking the other day aboput the video you made last year of all the Hummers at your feeder! I have seen two males and one female. There are five or six neighbors that feed the Hummingbirds plus lots of flowers. I would think the Hummingbird population would increase around here but it seems to stay about the same year to year.I too enjoy the up close pictures. Sherry
Dear Meggie,I tell my little birds all the time to "buck up and be aggressive". Not sure they listen to me!Always sad when non-natives take over, plants, bugs and birds! (oh, it also happened with people in my country!)Sherry
I just LOOOVE hummingbirds!!!
Dear Mel,You saw some amazing ones! We have Ruby Throated. I do love them too.Sherry
