2008 Hummingbird Migration Videos

September 7th, 2008

The 2008 fall migration was a very unusual one. The Ruby-throated hummingbirds were late nesting that year. The hatchlings coming off the nest combined with the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds migrating from north of us caused the numbers of hummingbirds at the feeders to be increased dramatically. For some, activity like this is normal. For us, we may not see this many here again. You have to turn the speakers up rather high, however you can hear the “chittering” of the hummingbirds as well as a few other birds in the background. Thanks, Jim

Another panning shot over the deck. Includes a zoom in on a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird that turns “grumpy” and again on the male Ruby-throated Hummingbird that owns the feeder on the right side of the deck.
