Even though we have had this feeder up for a couple of years, this was the first year we have seen so much activity around it.
This feeder is hanging off the deck right near the pool. So for the last month we have spent a good part of our time in the pool just watching these little guys. They are so territorial that they spend most of their time trying to keep the other birds away from the feeder, to the point of ramming into each other. We can actually hear them bumping! I am surprised we didn't find a stunned one in the pool!
Since we live in Indiana, these are Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. The ones in these pics are females, hence no bright colors, but I'm hoping to get a pictures of a bright throat soon. I'll keep the camera close :)
