Our Hummers headed for warmer land in October.  They are missed but we know they will return in April for another round of the sugar juice and entertain us for another season.  Thanks for sharing!

Great Picture of the Humming Birds.  I wonder if you have seen the Long Tail ones...In Jamaica it is called the Doctor Bird..It is the Jamaica National Bird

I like watching hummingbirds. They are so fast and aggressive. There might be 4 flowers available, but they will fight over just one.

One of my very favorite sights - I love these little buggers. Don't know if you ever saw this short little video I made about one of my regulars in the hood. Relax and enjoy the Flowers

Lovely photo Marge.

John, We have some who spend the entire summer here and others who are just passing throough.  I think these may be transients. Most of them migrate to Mexico or further south for the winter. 

Ron, they will be back as soon as they won't freeze to death!

Tim, I have spent a few happy hours watching them. 

Lloyd, this is a photo of a Jamacian Doctor Bird.  Gorgeous, isn't he? 

Fernando, These little hummers are fuel guzzlers also, they simply use different fuel.  They are also very high metabolism things.

Than, Debb has a great video of a little guy looking for a fight.  She does awesome videoos. 

Debb, I went over and watched several f the great videos you have done.  You are an inspiration to us all. Your poor little hummer wanted to fight almost more than to eat and had no opponent. 

Randi, Thanks for stopping by, we will keep them warm, fed and send them on their way further south. 

Debra,

Wow!  Thanks for the feature!  Hummingbirds are incredible!

Great picture. We still have a few green ones hanging around and all my Mexican Bird of Paradise flowers are gone but I feel so bad as they come there out of habit. I guess I am going to have to get a feeder for them. I have 2 wild bird feeders.  I hate ants and the sugar water in the hummingbird feeders attracts ants.

Kristin,

Do they usually stay all winter with you?  We see a lot in spring and fall, as they are migrating and some remain here for the summer but they spend most oof December and all of January and February in a warmer clime.
