Here we go:
Yesterday, several hummingbirds were fighting fiercely around the sole feeder at the kitchen window. To put an end to the stress I put up two more around in our garden.
While doing so one of the birds constantly buzzed around my head. I thought that maybe I could get that fearless "bugger" on the screen, and I did.
First he checked out the feeder.

|.. checking if anyone is watching me..|
|OK, maybe I should show off a little bit for this nice female...|
|What a wonderful opportunity this was for me. |
Thank you little bird!
I guess it is a Ruby-throated-hummingbird, male, because I read that they are the only ones that are breeding up here in North-East America.
Bea, he is just beautiful, and you've got the neck just perfect. It's so brilliant. You're going to enjoy having three feeders, I'll bet.ReplyDelete

I love your photos. I love watching the little hummingbirds we have here. We put of 3 feeders too but they are zooming all over the place including right by our ear. They fight over the same feeder and then eventually find another. What fun!! I guess we're just easy to entertain!ReplyDelete
