Tiny Birds


Since one week the hummingbirds are back! We were very happy to see that.
Die Kolibris sind seit einer Woche wieder da! Das hat uns sehr gefreut.

I have a butterfly bush outside my front door. The humming birds fight over it. I am guessing they are famished or they just don't want to share. I am thinking about planting more bushes that they will enjoy.

They are amazing birds.

I read that hummingbirds are fiercely protective of their food source and may even chase their own mate away. I think they don't like to share.

Oh, the picture is gorgeous!

Oh, wie wunderschön und interessant! Es muß phantastisch sein, die Kolibris zu beobachten. Mit was werden die Kolibris denn da gefüttert?
Liebe Grüße

Hallo Angelika u Bella,
die Kolibris trinken einen suessen Nektar, den man selbst mit einem Puder anruehrt....es ist aber nicht viel anders als rotes Zuckerwasser.

Es macht Spass die kleinen Voegelchen zu sehen. Sie sind direkt hier auf unserer Terrasse, wo im Winter das Futterhaus haengt.

Ich finde die kleinen Vögel auch voll süss, macht bestimmt Spass sie zu beobachten. Ich glaub ich hab bei Papa mal einen gesehen (ich hoffe das war wirklich einer...) und dachte erst es ist eine große Hummel oder so ;-)

I love this shot! I'm never able to get them so clear.

Fantastic. Is that a special humming bird feeder? We don't have those birds here...

Gudl said...

Yes, Mike, that is a special Hummingbird feeder.

Oh I want to get a humming bird feeder ~~ what a great capture you got of that little tiny bird.

With this last load from up north, I have my bird bath...hope the birds like it.
