The hummingbirds are here .......
A large flock of hummingbirds arrived a few days ago. It sounds like a swarm of bees when I go in the back yard where the feeder is. I had to fill this feeder twice today and it's almost empty again. They certainly are hungry little things.
I love to watch them as they fight for the feeder. Usually there is one really mean fellow that chases the others away. For such small birds they can be very noisy and very pushy. They will get right in my face when I add food to the feeder.
These birds will spend the summer here and have their babies. I have tried to find one of their nests, but have been unable to locate one. I think they are fascinating.
