Time to put up hummingbird feeders and to put a little research into the bird...

1. A hummingbird's heart beats up to 1,260 times a minute
2. Hummingbirds have excellent memories and can come back to the same feeders every year
3. Male hummingbirds can travel more than 1,000 miles without taking a single break.
4. Have the intelligence to build nice nests
5. Having only brains about the size of a grain of rice,

I am getting my hummingbird feeders ready now! Believing these little creatures were designed by the creative power of God!

Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? - Luke 12:24

Interesting. I’ve never seen a hummingbirds nest. Every thing about them is so small..even their nest! I wonder how tiny a hummingbird baby is?

I just put up feeders after I was sitting outside and heard a buzzing near my ear. I knew the sound as it’s very distinct. Sure enough as I turned my head to see, it flew away. I guess it was letting me know it’s time for feeders.

Hummingbirds arrived at my place mid-April. I have already filled my feeder twice and am hoping for better pictures...

I wish we had these beautiful little birds Living in the U.K.

I guess it’s to cold here for them?.

Have you see our big fat pigeons....boy do they make a mess, they perch on the tv aerial...my decking is covered in their poop....I know they have to be fed as well...they make such a mess though... puts me off feeding the other birds...I may start another topic of all the different birds we get to feed and see in all the different countries.

Two Hummingbird (“teenage”) siblings squabbling in their nest.
H1: “keep your claws on your side”!
H2: “keep your wing out of my face”.
Both: “Mom!”

Young hummingbird teetering on the edge of the nest: “No, no way. Fly? Too scary. Mom!”
