Fierce and Tiny Hummingbirds fight over Home Made Nectar
These little hummingbirds are some of the toughest and most energetic creatures on earth. The hum of their wings indicate the speed at which they are moving. We had put up several feeders across the yard for these tiny birds to re-charge their energies with delicious sweet homemade nectar and though there are several "flower" ports for sipping on each feeder, when even one other shows up they seem to spend most of the time trying to claim all of the feeders. If one gets some alone time, it will the hop around the tiny perches to sip a little from each of the plastic flowers. Their tongues are very long and can reach the nectar inside. Nat Geo calls them the jewels of the natural world. It is documented that they can see colors we can't. Amazing, isn't it?
