My tiny little winged friends

These tiny little hummngbirds are one of my favorite birds. Their aerial acrobats are swift, and agile and are a mighty force to witness. From where I sit, they are like little micro mini jets. They jockey one another for the best position. Giving chase to defend their spot.


Amazing in flight


If you could just all land on different spots there would be plenty for all of you.



Aerial art at it's best.




They don't mess with these guys. They mean serious business.




These little birds know when the coast is clear.



I will post more pictures as more of these birds stop by to fatten up for their trip south.

Usually in the end of September there are about thirty hummers.
I hope you enjoyed my view today. Thank you for stopping by and visiting.

We have a ton of feeders too. It is so fun to watch them fight over dinner. They are indeed so very tiny and precious.

Have a terrific day Pam. Big hug. :)

Hi Friend,

Aren't they amazing. So little but so fierce about wanting "it all for me".

I am always saddened when I take my feeder down in October. But I know they must go where it is warm.

Hummingbird hugs,
Joyce

I did enjoy your view today. The hummingbirds are so delightful. They make my day and will be sad when they leave.

Absolutely stunning and beautiful photos. I tried getting hummingbird pictures when I was visiting Quilly but couldn't do it. Perfect my friend :) Rabbit,l rabbit

They are beautiful! We don't get them here in the city but I would love to see them in real life!

Sandee, I think these are one of my favorite birds.

Big Texas HUGS to you!

Dear girls, thank you so much for the hummingbird hugs. That is so sweet of you.

DeEtta, They are amazing little birds and like you I will be sad when they leave. I am stocking up on sugar! LOL!

THom, thank you my friend. What does Rabbit,l rabbit mean? I forgot. I have lost all of my blog information so it will be a while before I do any add ons. :(

Aphra, how are you doing? It is always nice to see a comment from you my friend. Thank you for stopping by.

Crochet Lady, when we first moved here there were no birds except crows and now that we feed them we have a lovely assortment of beautiful birds.

Wow! I have never seen that many hummers on one feeder before. We only maybe 2 hummers and they only stayed for just a few days this summer.

take care-

Grace, thank you for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment. We have four feeders and flowers that entice them. Do you make your own surgar water? I agree that they are very fun birds to watch.


Cindy, I would check their sugar water and make sure it is not bad. Hummers have to find you first and then they will come back. May you have more hummers in the fall. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

Wow..you have a lot of them..I have 5 feeders, but there is always one who hogs the feeder and chases off others...thanks for feeding them....

Travis Cody said...

Those are some great shots! My mom likes to hang bird feeders, and hummies are some of her favorite birds to enjoy.

Finding Pam said...

DeEtta, everyday I get more hummers. They have to fight the honey bees. They have learned to take shifts. LOL!

Travis, I don't know anyone that doesn't love hummers. THat is really neat about your parents having all those deer. What kind of animals do they have in Arizona?
