hummingbirds

We have one kind of hummingbird here in South Jersey – the Ruby-throated Hummingbird. They are so fun that I mark my calendar every year regarding their behavior. I know now to put out my hummingbird feeders when the cherry tree begins to bloom in the spring. And I know that even though it is now peak hummingbird mayhem in my backyard, they will soon be migrating and I won’t see them again until the cherry tree blooms.DSC_0003I photographed this female from my office window.

And here’s a video with a hint of the mayhem going on in my yard. Although there are only ever 3 hummingbirds in the shot at once, there were at least 6 buzzing about the 4 feeders I have in the area. I do love themĀ  and am so happy to see them every year.
