It's a Bird, It's a Plane.................

I am so blessed to be able to enjoy watching these little ones from my front window.
I think that food must be "high octane" because they sure are flying fast when they go by.


There are two different sizes that come to feed.  I think it might be a family. 


Thanks for visiting.  Enjoy your day.

  3. Don't you just love those little hummers? We have one feeder hanging outside our dining window, and every morning they "fuel up" at the same time we have breakfast. I read where they need to dine many times during the day in order to maintain energy for their fast metabolism. Are yours kind of territorial? Ours maintain a tight hold on who can come and drink and what order they can do it! Another hummer characteristic. Great fun to have them!

    1. I think they probably are territorial. Once in a while I notice they sit the the nearby bushes to rest, refuel, and then zoom off again. LOL Thanks for visiting.

    1. You are absolutely right Gordon, they are not easy to photograph. I must have been in the window all day just to get a couple of shots good enough to show. Thanks for visiting, nice to make your acquaintance.

  6. Thanks for stopping by. I love watching and listening to the birds that visit my yard. I have actually had 12 different types visit. I want to put out a feeder to attract Orioles next. I have this little old lantern that is broken that I can put 1/2 of an orange in and hang it up. They like oranges. Hopefully it will work. Sounds like a new blog post to come.
    Have a wonderful rest of the week.

  7. Amazing you caught the movement so well. I do admire how beautiful they are.
    Believe it or not, the hummer is the one feeder i do not put out because I get upset at how aggressive some of the little darlins are. I saw them actually stab one another with that long beak and it upset me - a lot. All the other birds get on well and disappear when the Roadrunner comes for water.
    My Orioles love grape jelly and so do the ants. It's a win win as the Orioles also love ants!

  8. I'd heard about using grape jelly but think I'll skip that one, I don't like ants and we already have plenty around outside.
