I love watching them.

I have two feeders set up in the back yard and one female has decided they are HERS. I don't know how often she actually gets a chance to drink herself because she's so busy flying back and forth to chase away the other hummingbirds.

We have 2 feeders and a hibiscus tree that they love. Every year one asserts him/herself as the dominant bird and attacks every other bird that comes near. It's really funny watching one try to guard both feeders and the tree at one time.

WHAT?!?!?!?
Now you are just being downright spiteful to share with all of us that you live someplace where it is actually warm enough for a hummingbird to survive.

This has been the winter from hell, and the high today is going to be 8. Yes you read that right 8!!!! (the normal high for today is 42).

But back to the hummers.....My parents always hang feeders, and they are very territorial and get into little spats, and chirp angrily at each other, it's fun to watch. But I won't see that for at least another 2.5-3months.

Have you seen this video? A teen rescued an orphaned hummingbird.

It's one of the sweetest things I've ever seen.

I guess I'll stop complaining about our 20 degree weather!

And that video is wonderful! They are amazing little creatures.

If you have multiple feeders, it's best to hang them out of sight from each other it cuts down on the territorial battles.

Slight t/j: My mother woke me up this morning because she couldn't remember how to make the hummingbird solution. *sigh* It's tough when you mom becomes your child.

I miss hummingbirds. I feed them all summer long- both months of summer.

both months of summer

Funny I was thinking about ''both months of winter" in AZ today. Mom''s question about the hummingbird food made me think that the hummers were starting migration early.

We had to cut down a bunch of bottle brush at my place, so I've put feeders up for our local hummers. One in the back and one on the front porch. The way they dive bomb me when I get too near is hysterical! Thank goodness they aren't the size of mockingbirds!


Imagine a ship trying to set sail while towing an anchor. Cutting free is not a gift to the anchor. You must release that burden, not because the anchor is worthy, but because the ship is.

I have 4 hummingbird feeders and they just go crazy and mob the feeders all day. Sometimes there are 20+ birds out there all feeding at the same time. During the summer we have to fill the feeders several times a day, but now in the winter we only fill them once a day. They are so much fun to watch, especially when there are 8 of them on a feeder at once.

I used to hang feeders all summer, but with the bees it is honestly a pain in the neck. One has to have bee proof feeders, and they aren't easy to find. Bee resistant does not work if you have 15 hives in your back yard. LOL

I love hummingbirds too, but then the squirrels figured out you could tip the feeder and get a really sweet drink. They took over all of my feeders, going to great lengths to get around anything I try to do to discourage them. I finally gave up.

I hate squirrels.
