More Hummers

The cool weather seems to have brought in more hummingbirds. The photo above is our resident hummer. He normally sits in a palo verde tree just outside the wall to guard the feeder from any other bird that tries to stop in for a drink. He has his work cut out for him this time of year, because of the winter visitors.

This year he has a lady friend that he lets drink from the feeder. Sometimes they both in the palo verde tree near each other.

  1. The pictures are wonderful. Hummingbirds are such odd little creatures, incredibly fine in form, and yet disproportionately vicious in their dealings with their peers and other birds. Fun to watch though.

  2. Love the shading on the hummers with respect to the feeders!
