While the WWN "Bird Feed" Cam, Brought to you by Amazing 20/20 Window Cleaning, was a little slow today (OK that is an understatement...it was VERY slow today), across town some backyards were already "buzzing." Rhonda Cantu sent us this amazing video from her yard! See below.
It's always amazing how one part of town can have hummers in droves, when other parts are nearly dead. We do have a beautiful Buff Bellied male (in addition to a few Rubies) who keeps gracing our feeders though. He's pretty enough that it makes watching hours of nothing worth it when you finally see him on cam. But don't worry...more are coming, and this happened last year too--when it was very slow and then it picked up a lot. By the way, we are playing around with shade and sunny areas of the yard--thinking perhaps that the shade would entice a few more birds to come on cam...there have been several dive bombing around the cam today. (Headphones work well to hear the various bird calls around the cam if you have some to plug in.)
