FIRST..WARNING>>>> Turn your sound down, its been very windy and is loud at times.

Over the last 2 days Ive had a female visiting, not sure if its the same one.You can also hear her chirping in a few of the vids. In the second vid if you are able to follow her as she flies away, the sparrow at the back left corner of the yard try's to chase her.The last vid is in slow motion for some reason. After you open link, on the bottom right side of the vid bar, you can enlarge to full screen. Even the rain doesn't stop her.....Enjoy.

Thanks for sharing Alex. I'm not seeing any now since the couple of females I had were just migrating. It's nice too see some until I get more later this year

Alex,

Looks like you are keeping the hummingbirds well fed! They sure seem to enjoy your feeder. Very nice, clear videos.

Cool shoots Alex.

Do you ever see the sparrows be successful? I have ospreys here on my lake and I've never seen them go after a hummer but when they are around I've noted the hummers seem to be more vigilant.

Thanks to all...

We shall see if she stays. Its day 3 and shes still visiting the feeders. I put out some poly floss that I use for my wetdry filters (saltwater tanks). Let see if she grabs any.


I have seen a few lil battles from the sparrows, that's about it. There is a vid out there with a roadrunner jumping and snagging a RTH near a feeder.
