West Texas Hummers 4h
7:37 8/7 With the hummingbirds zipping in and out so quickly it is hard to focus on any bird. But you can't miss the pop of copper color from a male Rufous Hummingbird and the lovely purple of a male Lucifer's gorget when the light hits it just right.

16:28 8/6 It's no surprise that we see so many Black-chinned Hummingbirds at the feeders since they breed here. Most arrive between mid-March & early May and breed from late March to mid-August. Most south-bound migrants depart from mid-July to mid-October.

Did you know? More than a dozen species of hummingbirds regularly summer in the United States with nearly 350 species in all of the Americas. In the U.S. and Canada, there are 4 species that are commonly seen at backyard feeders. Check them out here:

7:51 8/6 It is hard to focus on all the hummingbird action as migration heats up. But with the new camera angle you can also see action at the flowering plants on the deck and the other feeders farther away.

07:18 - 08/06/20 Despite the amount of ports available, hummingbirds are often "programmed" to eat from the same flower/port at the same exact time of day, each day! Hence the bickering we'll see at times when there's plenty of room/feeding ports to accommodate each one. :o)

07:00 - 08/06/20 Good morning! It may not be obvious with the lack of sunlight, but fortunately hummers tend to bring out the lighter side in most of us! Grab your coffee & join us! :o)

16;25 8/5 Even though there is plenty of room, these two Black-chinned Hummingbirds don't seem to want to play nice and share.

They were exceptionally busy today. They may know something about incoming weather, but it's possible some are from further North and making their way through slowly.

11:39 8/3 Male Broad-tailed Hummingbirds:. Some species are hard to tell apart, especially when the males' throat colors are similar like the broad-tailed & ruby-throated hummingbirds. But Broad-tailed are primarily Western birds & they have rounded rather than forked tails.

7:19 7/3 So much action at once! There is a baker's dozen of birds in this screen shot. But these little birds are so acrobatic, you don't see any unintentional crashes.
