Ruby -Throated Hummingbirds..
There have been a few pictures, in an email, of a woman and all these Hummingbirds
eating out of her hands..I put up two pictures for you to see..Now they say, she is in a Hummingbird zone and maybe that makes a difference..I can only tell you this..at my Hummingbird feeder, they dive bomb each other and make sure they don't share a drop of food..I have been watching them for quite a few years and it is always the same thing..Had one female sit on a bush and she made sure no one would get near the feeder..soon as they did, she was after them..I took a picture of a male eating, before another came after him..I have been trying to get pictures, but they are too fast for me.
In the spring, I always know when they arrive..one will fly to my door, where I have the feeder every year, then fly away..Letting me know they are here.
As far as sharing, my little friends haven't learned that yet..Have to admit, they do make bird watching exciting.
Till next time, keep looking up..
