This little guy is so territorial. We have 3 feeders out on our deck, and he sits on his perch and chases any other birds away. These guys are really fun to watch. We put the necter our yesterday, and we have had 3 or 4 buzzing around here all afternoon.

Good pics, David. Those little buggers are mighty hard to photograph. We have seen a couple around our flowers in the last few days. We have taken down all the feeders and only need to clean them up and refil them and hang them back out. Mean while, they have a few flowering plants in our yard to keep them busy. ;)

Great pics David, We have had feeders up all summer but this last week the activity has quadrupled. Why are there soo many around all the sudden? Someone told my wife they were migrating. From where to where? Hmmmm.....

We have a big Cape Honeysuckle(orange flowers) on a trellis by our front door(house on stilts) and have had as many as 50+ ruby throated around it at once. If those little aggressive suckers weighed a pound they'd be dangerous.
They migrate through Galveston across the Gulf into Mexico/Central America.
Don't forget to quit feeding them at the end of October so they will leave on their way.

I guess you have to shoot them in transit to the feeder, and not while they are sitting on it to keep the pellets from breaking thecontainer holding the nectar? Those things are hard to hit, should be a good tune up for opening morning of dove season........jk, great photos......

Normally ours show the second week of September, but this year they showed the second week of August after one of the early cold fronts. They acted insulted that the feeders wern't already out.
