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

    • Had an 09'. Got rid of it. Also,  you could not keep the front end aligned.  Otherwise a very nice truck.
    • Helps when I comprehend what I read.  I actually just cut the handle off my tongue jack on my Yetti and welded on 3/4 nut too.  My M18 drill with 1,200 in-lbs (2704-20) and it has no problem raising or lowering the tongue.  Biggest thing I noticed was making sure my drill was on the #1 low speed setting.      As far as torque goes and harming your auger.  I think you are totally fine and shouldn't harm anything.  The max amount that these K-Drills and Clam plates are drilling these days with the big drills are 8".  Most sized augers these days have no problem turning a 10" auger which is nearly twice as large of an area than an 8" auger.  Being 2 strokes can normally operate in any orientation without being damaged the only concern I would have would be your gears and any shifting of grease inside operating the auger head on its side under load.    They say Ions will do 10" holes but after I talked to their customer service reps about it, I wouldn't trust an Ion with a 10" more than I do a wet fart.  Just the fact that they don't even sell a 10" package indicates there could possibly be issues with torque and reliability when operating the 10" auger "accessory".  For now I'd just stick to your strike master going up and save your Ion any extra wear and tear.  Maybe even ask Santa for some electric jacks this Christmas
    • As the media begins to draw a pretty picture about the November jobs report, namely that unemployment has dropped to 4.6 percent, its lowest level in nine years, they are unlikely to tell you the other part of the story. The labor force participation rate continues to decline and is stuck at a rate we haven't seen since February 1978, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  It gets worse. Last month, we lost 4,000 manufacturing jobs, offering more damage to the already 301,000 we've lost since President Obama took office. - Town Hall   See for yourself.. U.S. Dept of Labor / BLS Date Viewer   Whaaa ???   OH, MY....  
    • I wouldn't do that for each one. I was wondering if you couldn't cut a winch down, or maybe just leave it as is, so you could attach a drill to the low speed post and tack weld/rig a socket or something for the other side and just hold it in your hand. It probably won't work because it sounds too easy. 
    • My, such big words!! Yer a talented liddle Smurf, aintcha? We might as well get to work doin' what we were accused of, munchkin!!! Like Carly Simon said, "no one does it better"....
