Mad hummingbird checking the stream as he flies lower and lower. Voicing concerns.

Parked in the middle of nowhere #NewMexico yesterday to watch the early cells. Heard a disturbingly large insect zip overhead. Turned around and it was a #hummingbird ! Imagining it descending from its long flight toward the mountains to see whether my tail lights might have nectar

A late rain here cools and clears the air. This is the second year a humming bird has nested in this plant. Not sure if the is the same bird as last year or 1 of 2 of last year's hatchlings. #Bird #HummingBird #Drone #Spring

I have put out the pretty Allura feeder again, and yesterday in the evening as a late surprise for my birthday, a Rubythroated Hummingbird came to visit. He needs to figure out how to sit down but I am sure he will learn.
(I am livestreaming this camera in my channel on The feeder is made by Perla:

@Mrfunkedude last #hummingbird of the day didn't perch but drank a lot from the newly cleaned and refilled feeder. After a good long uninterrupted drink he headed off presumably to where he roosts and I headed in. #today

The #hummingbirds here are seriously awnry.

Rather than actually drinking all the nectar I make for them, they mostly like to just sit in the tree next to the feeder and gaurd it so that if - god forbid - another #hummingbird should come to drink from it, they chase them away before they get a chance to.



So I go out this weekend and buy a SECOND feeder. Place it in the original spot (so they know where to find it) and move the 1st to a new spot, far away. So now, if 2 come along at the same time, they can each have their very own, private feeder.

But no. Not good enough.

3 times I see one fly to the old spot and just... hover... around the new one. Eyeing it skeptically.

THIS is not my feeder.

Until.... realization. Oh THERE it is, what's it doing all the way over there?

Now they just keep returning to the old one to drink and not even bothering with the new one.

Well. I tried.

It's hummingbird season. My wife loves these tiny aerodynamic wonders and has 5 feeders around the house. This one is attached to our kitchen window.

This is probably a female ruby-throated hummingbird (Archilochus colubris), but it's possible that it is a black-chinned hummingbird (Archilochus alexandri). Almost all hummingbirds around here are ruby-throated, so that's what I'm going with. I would rather it be a black-chinned because they are rare, in this area anyway. This photo lacks the emerald feathers which is probably due to lighting.

#photo #photography #photographer #photographylovers #birds #birdsofmastodon #birdwatching #hummingbird #RubyThroatedHummingbird

This hummingbird is perched on a small oak tree branch facing the camera to the right. There are leaves on the birds right and out of focus forest in the background.  The bird's head is lifted and its long needle like black beak angles up and curves very slightly to a point.  The bird's neck and breast are white with darker feathers mixed in, giving it a dirty white look.  The wing, head, and tail feathers appear brown in this photo and the tail feathers have white tips.  Tiny feet hold the branch.

Ruby-throated #hummingbird at our feeder from a couple of weeks ago. There’s still a few around but I think most of the spring migration wave has already passed through here.

Every once in a while, I get a visit from a hummingbird, it looks at me and laughs and then it leaves. 😞 I've tried all kinds of things, and nothing seems to keep them around. I think they're just migrating and passing through for a visit.

I walked through a cloud forest today and this hummingbird nest was pointed out to me. Two days ago, it had babies in it, which means that somewhere there is a happy snake with a full belly. #BirdNest #BirdNests #CloudForest #RainForest #hummingbird #CircleOfLife

This is “my” young male resident Anna’s #Hummingbird. Fortunate to have them here, in the #Seattle area year round.

These little winged wonders flutter their wings at a remarkable 80 times per second! They do NOT flap their wings, they rotate them in a figure 8.

I saw them! Watching through my binoculars, I saw the #hummingbird mom return to the nest and dip her beak down into it, and I saw the movement of little shapes reaching up to receive the food! Very exciting! I’d like to try again for a picture, but I don’t want to go out to the nest area for the second day in a row (she does NOT like humans to be anywhere in the yard, I mostly watch through a window). Maybe later this week.

I had a very limited window to try and take some video from above using my tripod extension before mom came back, never got a good focused shot but those aren’t eggs, which were clearly visible before. Could definitely be just-hatched babies. #hummingbird

Exciting #hummingbird news! Today I just noticed that instead of arriving back at the nest and immediately nestling down, she perched on the edge of the nest and was dipping her beak down into it, like maybe feeding/investigating babies??? 😍

An Anna's hummingbird feeds on nectar deep inside an aloe flower while hovering in place. The light shines across his back and through his dark brown eye. The edges of his gorget show green, gold, and red iridescence along his cheek while his back feathers bounce shades of yellow, green, and blue.

Rusty orange flower stalks fill the background.
Another frame of the Anna's hummingbird at the same flower as the previous photo, slightly closer crop. His wings are toward the top of a stroke now. The edges of the flower are slightly translucent, and the hummingbird's bill casts a shadow through it.
The hummingbird moved to a lower flower. This photo is mostly from behind, showing his glowing green back. His gorget is mostly dark since he's facing away. The edge of his left eye has a small bright highlight along the outer edge.
The hummingbird perched on a flower stalk for his last flower visit; hovering takes a lot of energy.

His translucent black wings are laying flat at his side showing clear separation between the different feather groups.

The yellow-green to blue-green gradient across his back is bright. He matches the background aloe plants well.

It's 22° F in Portland, Oregon at 7PM. The forecast calls for 18° F overnight. The #hummingbirds were at the feeder today, and we kept warming the feeder tubes as they froze solid.

So you may be wondering how do hummingbirds survive these bitter cold winter nights? Hummingbird torpor! Upside down! That's how. Check out their fascinating survival skills.
