Here at our house, we have several visitors each year. All these cute Ruby Throated Hummingbirds grace us with their presence. This year we have about 5 of them...it's a little difficult to count them when they are whizzing here and there.
It's amazing how they chase, taunt and just generally aggravate each other! We sit out on our patio and can hear them chattering and buzzing by our heads. We call these close encounters "Fly Bys"...and fly bys they are! More like "Mass Attacks" as my husband would say!
I have enclosed a few photo's I have taken from inside the house. We have a feeder hanging right outside the kitchen window , so some of these are from that view. The other location in the pictures is on the front porch, right in front of the "picture window" in our living room.
We actually have five feeders...three out front and two at the side of the house. The more feeders we add, the more hummers we have.
A couple of them appear to be baby ones...they are much smaller than the others...
Enjoy the pictures!
