Speachless Sunday: Hummingbird - South Jersey

Real Estate Agent with Premier Properties Real Estate

Steve, Thanks for the lovely shot of the hummer.  I watch them around our windows early in the morning and then when we get home in the evenings, and I never tire of watrching the tiny jet fighters unrelentlessly chase away the other hummers from the feeder they decide to claim for themselves. Hmmm-is there a parable emerging about realtors, here?

Dee - I never seen a humming bird standing in one spot. They are always buzzing around when I see them.

Such a lovely picture.  Our natural world of animals is full with awe and appreciation.  Did you know some hummingbirds supplement their nectar by catching fruit flies and aphids?

On another note, please join my storyline Cutthroat Suzie, have fun with it.

Great analogy - they absolutely are like little jet fighters! (Thanks for the reblog!)

Robert, Last year I tied a twig from an azalea bush onto the stand we hung the feeder on, to give the little guys a chance to rest.  Do you know that from that day to this day, that twig is occupied for long periods by various hummers, taking their rest--and of course, to launch an attack on another hummer seen near the feeder.

Dee Mayers, I'm so glad to know that the hummingbirds also feed on these pesky insects. A neighbor told me about them eating insects too, but didn't know which ones.  You've added to my growing store of info about these delightful creatures!
