MY Teeny Tiny Hummingbirds

Mom has been trying to get pictures of these little hummingbird guys for AGES but you all know how fast they are........ in fact both Mom and I have been guilty of mistaking them for big old bumble bees. Mom nearly swatted one one day as she was watering the flowers and I have even snapped at one thinking it was a buzzy bee when it fluttered around my head. See these little guys are so tiny - only about and inch and a half long and their wings make a buzzing sound and they fly so fast it is hard to tell what they. We also saw one last night we had never seen before - it was the same size but had a black head, a yellow ring around it's neck and a emerald green body. Mom has three feeders hanging up so they are constantly buzzing around .

  1. Very nice pictures of the humming birds. Our neighbor has humingbird feeders so they zip by our place too.

  6. I love hummingbirds. I had to give up the feeders here though - Monty was clever enough to catch the birds. I'm always happy to see them.

  7. Nice job on getting pictures of these little guys! They do fly soooo fast and we find they are very shy.

    We always plant flowers in our planters that are hummer friendly. Our yard is filled with beautiful red bee balm which they love. We've just not had time to get out our camera.

    Hugs,

  10. Aww, you have two sharing a feeder! Mine will not share, but instead battle it out, which is entertaining, but I wish they would realize there is plenty for every bird.

    They won't be around here much longer....I'll miss them when they migrate.

  20. We don't have them in our window since we don't have a feeder for them, but Mom remembers being fascinated with them as a little girl. Her grandparents had them up at their lake home. Cute little buggers.

  21. We love our hummingbirds. They are angry little birds, always fighting to defend their feeder. I have one that must be the scout. He comes first thing every year and flies right up in my face, then zooms away. He only zooms my face again when the feeder is empty and when he leaves each year. It's really cool. ☺
