I have several hummingbird feeders in a view from my computer chair and love to watch their behavior. They are very territorial .
Few pictures from the closest feeder which is about 8-10 feet from the window.

If anybody interested, I also uploaded a video on Youtube today how they interact in motion

and previously video of having a bath around our fountain

I can't tell you how envious I am of you, Klahanie being able to see these little treasures so close to your home. Feeding our garden finches costs a fortune but I'd bankrupt myself to have these!!

A happy little bunch there Klahanie. You must be doing something right.

Yes, LOL I still see them. I had my patio renovated where they used to live underneath in caves they dug out. A lot of their habitat was destroyed with the installation of the new patio. They are slowing coming back and occasionally I'll see one running around, but I can't get close enough for a picture...yet! You have a good memory.

Interesting to see how they feed,never seen a feeder like that before. The you/tube was interesting as well, thank you.

Thanks for posting, Klahanie! Wonderful pics! How lucky you are to have such beauties visiting you. First time I have seen a feeder specifically for them - great to see them feed.
Thanks also for the links!

they are beautiful birds aren't they? I seem to remember being told many years ago that hummingbirds are the only birds able to fly backwards and many actually go into 'hibernation' every night.

How lovely. You have also taught me something today.
I never knew that hummingbirds would go to feeders! I would sit watching them all day if they were in my garden!
Thanks for posting and the you tube link.

What a truly wonderful sight. Don't ever take them for granted as they are so sweet and so special.
