King of the Feeder Pole


I have a hummingbird feeder just outside my kitchen window. At different times today a little hummingbird would sit on top of the feeder pole facing the window. I believe he was guarding the feeder. When he flew off to chase another hummingbird this little guy jumped on and stayed for a while.

What a great shot you got there, i am in the market for a better camera, i am so jealous that you are able to get such close up shots.

Another brilliant photo Dot. I'm sure the birds in my garden have extra good hearing; as soon as I pick up my camera they disappear! :o)

Not a clue what it is Dot, another one going through the moult by the looks of the plumage. I great shot that captures the birds awareness.

My husband and I were just talking about hummingbird's the other day. We were sittng on our front porch swing and looking at the hummingbird feeder my mom and step-dad gave me for mother's day. I had just filled it up a few day's earlier and it was almost 3/4 of the way gone. I find those little bird's very fasinating.

Hi what a happy bird, he/she is looking very clear out-of-the eyes. Great shot.

To answer your Q on my blog ( flower 4 uncle) Yes he's glad with the small attention, he felt a bit lonely (he's 75) So I wnated o add the flowers anyway on my blog, this made his day, and it is a sweet uncle.

Bye see you JoAnn :)

Great shot. I love it when people put plant hooks or shepard's hooks out for birds to land on and they do. This is a nice bird and I think it looks something like a Wren with its tail perked up.

Dot~ you are amazing!
I snapped some pictures of our hummingbirds... but not quite like yours.
I wonder if they are the same birds~ buzzing around the southeast.

Hummingbirds are quite cute as far as birds go. Lovely pics.

in 1600s London aparently they used to have bridges over the river full of houses and pubs etc what a novel idea I wonder why they don't do that nowadays?
