Crazy Birds!!!

It's been exciting around here. I think I may have up to 50 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds at one time...hard to count...if you look too hard you might lose an eye!!!
I'm hoping this video is not too long and boring...

No way it is long or boring.It's great! I love the sounds they make and the Crepe Myrtle is just gorgeous! Hope you do more vids Evie!

My goodness, look at them all! I've never seen so many humming birds at once! The noise they make is so adorable. Thanks for posting this video Eve :)

My hubby and I love watching the humming birds at our house too. One day, while sitting on the steps of our pool, I was half in and half out of the water and I was watching one of our feeders that's right next to the pool. I'll be darned if one of those little suckers flew right at me and stopped... hovered in front of my face for about 20 seconds! It was totally awesome!! Even my hubby said, "wow, that was cool!" They really are cute little birds and so curious!

Great vid! Not boring at all!

WOW... Eve, those feeders of yours must hold some high test sugar water!

Awesome Eve! And I thought we had Hummingbird fights going on. Now it just looks like a small squabble. LOL!

Enjoy them while you can! Oh, and by the way, do you still have male hummingbirds or just females? I haven't seen a male here in a while.

Eve said...

Thanks everyone! So glad you liked the video.

Sharon there are a few males here, mostly females. I'm not sure if the young ones would have their adult feathers by now.

wow...wonderful video! You really have a lot of hummers. I've only got about 3-4 and they can't manage to share at all. It gets frustrating when you know you have plenty of food, but one wants to hog it all. I see so much chasing, they burn up all their energy doing that.
