Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

I have never before witnessed four Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds at my front yard nectar feeder at the same time.  They all swarmed it!  They did ariel acrobatics, swooping, and swirling around the feeder.  At times, it was likely that they were competing for the “Territory” of that feeder.  I only got pictures of three at a time but there were brightly colored males and a less colorful female at the feeder.  All of this happened yesterday morning just after a short rainstorm at about 9:30 AM.  By the way, there was very fresh sugar water nectar that I had just made the night before.  I guess the birds liked it!  Please click on the thumbnail version to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. What a fabulous picture of the two in flight and facing each other!! Red and green! It is stunning. Maybe the rain makes them frisky!

  2. Isn’t it amazing how the birds –including hummers—come to the feeders right after a rain??? I usually get some good pictures after it rains…

    Speaking of rain, I hope we get some these next couple of days!!!!
