More Hummingbirds

I took these photos tonight of the feeding frenzy. A bit crazy for a winter day so just imagine what it's like around here in the summer. We have four feeders lined up along the back of the house. The first picture is of the one on the far right and the second picture is of the other three. We have a huge oak tree behind the house where the hundreds of hummingbirds hang out awaiting their turn at a feeder. Walking between the feeders and the risking your life.


  1. I just found your blog and am astonished by the crowds of hummers!! Where are you located? so many winter over there!

  2. Hi Sharon! We are about an hour away from Sacramento, CA. The hummingbirds will leave for the winter if you stop feeding them but it's mild enough here that if you do keep the feeders full they will stick around.

  3. Amy, have you seen the hummingbird cam that shows a mama hummer raise her babies? You can see pictures here: At the bottom of the page, there is a link to the livestreaming camera.

  4. Wow, I've never seen so many at once. It's like a hummingbird cafeteria!
