First hummer

First hummer, at my wet, homemade birdseed buffet feeder drinking birdseed water. We quickly filled up the hummingbird feeder. Hoping she comes back! I think shes a juvenile.

Humming Bird In Our Backyard

Hummingbird Advice Needed.

The hummingbirds at our feeder are attacking and chasing each other! Yesterday I saw three female Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds fighting! We got two feeders and put them in different places but they are still fighting! What can I do to make them not fight? I saw a male that got attacked and the feathers on his belly were coming off! Also 1 adult female Ruby Throat has a strange scar. She didn’t have that before. I saw her one day with now scar and the next day with a scar. She has been attacking the other females and males. Also, we saw an adult male with the same problem. See photos


Here are the hummingbirds that visited yesterday. We also saw a male and female black-chinned hummingbird. (Not at the feeder) Also. the shimmery part of a male hummingbird’s throat is called a gorget.

Ruby builds her nest

Spotted this female Ruby-throated stretching spider web silk to build her nest. It was such a tiny nest, I never would have seen it without her frequent nest building visits.
