Jon Crispin's Notebook

The hummingbirds are back in full force.  This fellow with the beautiful red throat was the first one I’d seen this year, and he showed up about a week ago.  All the feeders are going strong and there are now a (collective noun?) of them around.  We once read that you should have at least 2 feeders as they are quite territorial.  We now have 3 and they chase each other around chirping like mad.  They are not shy at all; I was basically standing right next to the feeder to get this shot.

The hummingbirds have been draining the feeders this year.  They are very territorial and are always chasing each other around.  I had forgotten just how noisy they are.  They “cheep” in a manner not too different from the chipmunks.
