The Hummingbird Porch

(The Hummingbirds fly South at the end of September)

If you are fascinated by hummingbirds, you can sit on the "hummingbird porch"

and watch hummingbirds feed, fight, and fly.  The hummingbirds arrive in April.

The males arrive first and scout out the territory.  The females arrive several weeks later.

We always make sure to have the feeders out when the males arrive so they will stay.

 The photos on this page were taken by visiting photographer Bruce Gaucher . 

The top pictures are of black chin females, the bottom picture is of a black chin male.

Notice the white spot eye markings, not characteristic of all black chins.

 

Wonderful photos of our hummingbirds on our porch taken by Johnny Bliznak, M.D. click here.

Nest is 2" across, very small and hidden

 

On June 27th they flew away after 23 days in their nest.
