I am awed when they fight, zipping around like fighter pilots out of a science fiction movie. Only no real fighter pilot ever had that speed and agility. They are amazing.
We had been without a feeder for more than a year, our neighbor with all the hibiscus was getting all the hummer action. Finally, I found a good feeder that we could afford, and away we go. They were sipping on this feeder within a few hours of it going up.
I feel blessed to have hummingbirds in my yard.
