Ruby-throated Hummingbird Fun – Traveler and the Troubles

We put together a fun video of our very first Ruby-throated Hummingbird we call “Traveler” having a time with two new “troubles” visiting at the Homestead. We have 4 feeders out now, but this was at the time we had just one and didn’t know until that day that we had more visitors. Lots of close up video of Traveler and his friends feeding!

First Hummingbird 2021

We observed our first hummingbird visitor for the 2021 season on 3/18/2021 – a male Ruby-throated Hummingbird visited our feeders in the evening hours.

Hummers

I use one dollar hummingbird feeder, they last about a year. Hummers love them.
