Female Hummer...

12 posts in this topic

After my experience the other day stumbling upon the Ruby throat as he was sucking up the nectar from the [me] willows, it motivated to hang up a couple of feeders at the house. Here's a couple from yesterday...

You nailed her, McTavish... c'mon over to see a real airshow wink. After I hung up from talking to you last night, I had 4 on the perches with another 3 waiting their turn... got up and checked the other feeder and it was the same story there shocked .

A couple of males were starting to do their courtship flight, too cool!!!

Very nice shots Stu! We had hummers at the feeders within 45 minutes of hanging them last week. The boys were dancing too! I just love watching these amazing little creatures!

Thank you all for those comments, happy to share!

Mike, about my background? I'm just a guy who grew up in Maniotba pursuing many sports & outdoor interests. This is especially true when it came to hunting & fishing etc. I have always had a keen interest in photography and since I no longer practice the hunting skills that I had acquired over the many years, I am now fully dedicated to hunting from behind the lenses of my camera. By doing so, it allows me the opportunity to continue my passion for exploring the great outdoors and all the wonderful sites that God has provided for us all to enjoy. I love sharing my photography with those who appreciate it and I equally love viewing others photography as well.

In a nutshell, that's who I am. wink

    • Bernie has not a lick of common sense. He appeals mainly to those fuzzy-brained dreamers and of course that includes many of today's youth,   who despite having great school systems, cannot learn much more than how to operate a cell-phone. A thoughtful politician can dream when he's having a snort or sitting in a duck blind or golfing but when the tires hit the road he's gotta function within some realistic parameters.  Bernie can't do that. Nothing personal Bernie, but it's time to go home and sit down-the election is over and nobody will be interested in you next time.
    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
    • a quick blurry shot and off they went. still trying to get them together in a good shot. maybe some day.  
    • I posted that several days ago, although if you know what interest rates will be doing over the next several years you have better ways to spend your time than posting here.    You would no longer have to work for a living for sure.     To refresh your memory, the 9.1 trillion that you and Rand Paul are so upset about would not increase the debt to GDP ratio, assuming a 5% growth in Nominal GDP, which would be 3% growth and 2% inflation.      Do you have a figure for acceptable level of Debt to GDP?
