Greetings, I have finally been able to get hummingbirds to come to my house. Here is the video I made of them in High Definition. I have also done a little bit of editing to get some slow motion shots. I hope you enjoy and let me know if you have any comments for me or information on these birds.

Welcome to the forum Laser.
Yes you were correct. One is an adult male ruby-throated and the other is an adult female that appears to have been sitting on a nest recently as I noticed her nest mark.

Is your feeder leaking by any chance? I couldn't help notice that both the adult male and adult female appeared to go to the seam at the bottom of the feeder a lot.

Yes, I believe the feeder is leaking because I have noticed the same thing about them drinking from the bottom. I might try to pull the flower off and see if I can figure out why it is doing this.

Thanks for your information on the birds too. What time during the movie did you notice the nest marks? I did not pick up on that. Also is the grayish one the male and the green back one the female?

The adult female with the nest mark is the one that was doing the inflight stationary hover just before flying over to the feeder. If you look at her chest you should notice a curved indentation on her breast feathers. I think I was mistaken on the one I thought was an adult male. I had to go back and take a second look The other one may be an immature male or a female as I didn't see the red gorget but it did have darker markings than the other female. An adult male would have red at the throat and his head would appear black or nearly black depending on how the light hits him.

Welcome to the forum , nice video. I might make one suggestion I think most of us would rather hear natural bird sounds as opposed to the music, enjoy the forum.

He may not have been close enough to get natural sound. I enjoyed the background music

Very nice Laser! The female definately was checking you or the camera out!

You did some great zooming and panning during the video. Was this the way it was shot or are you able to pan and crop the video as it is moving? Reason I asked is that you seemed to anticipate its' very movements!

Is the base one piece or does it screw together and perhaps the seam is open a bit? If so this could be where they are taking some sips from.

Cute video, Lasser!

I do like how the hummer seemed to come right to the camera for a brief moment!
