Each day more hummingbirds visit our feeders. So far I've seen only the Black-chinned Hummingbirds, but there are a couple of other species that might show up here.
I have 4 feeders in various locations outside our motorhome... our daughter, who house is maybe 100' behind us, has at least 4 feeders, maybe 5, hanging from their wrap-around porch. During the summer these feeders are filled daily... there is so much activity.
This morning, just as it was getting light, our feeders were bombarded with so many hummers I couldn't keep count. It was barely daylight and I had a time trying to adjust the camera's speed and light to accommodate their quick movements. I can easily count a dozen in some of my photos... but there were more.... zipping in and out of range... chasing each other from the feeders.... it looked like a real feeding frenzy!
The feeder that is nearly all red got the most activity. That feeder's been up the longest and maybe they're just more used to it. The striped feeder gets the least activity, although these two feeders are only a about 3-4' apart.
I have a feeder on our back window... it seems to get a constant flow of birds, but not nearly the activity of the red one.
And... my favorite feeder... the one just outside the window where Bill & I sit....
Look at the little bully perched on top. He claimed this one as his own and dive-bombs any other hummer that attempts to feed.
Although we have continual activity all day long, it is at daylight, and again at dusk that it just gets crazy.
One thing... I don't have to worry about the sugar water fermenting or otherwise going bad.... it just doesn't last that long!
That's All For Today!
