Hummingbird Season

We have 2 hummingbird feeders now – the traditional hanging variety, and the small type that sticks with a suction cup to a window (like Uncle Joe has in PEI).

We have 2 kinds of hummingbirds and at least 2 of each. Tonight 2 ruby throated hummingbirds were chasing each other around for hours. They are noisy and vicious. Grandma and Joe said they’d never heard a hummingbird – other than the brrrrrr of their wings – and thought I was crazy. But hummingbirds are quite chatty – and vicious when they are fighting with each other!

Here are some pictures:
