Hummingbirds at Sandia Crest–Part II

Yesterday I posted photos of individual hummingbirds at Sandia Crest. Those photos, however, do not begin to show the large numbers of hummingbirds that were at the feeders. Here are a few group photos:

I took this short video of the hummingbirds skirmishes at the feeders. I hope you enjoy it.

I hope to do one more blog post on this trip to Sandia Crest which will show the lovely scenery and views from the area.

Update: I have posted photos and commentary on my walk up to Sandia Crest on my Photo Flurries blog.

    Oh Linda, they are so sweet. Wonderful! I just have to see some of these! Thank you for sharing :-)

  2. Oh my goodness! I have never seen so many hummingbirds before … and I thought we had a lot of tiny visitors at our feeders. What an awesome experience for you to view all of them feeding together. Terrific images, as usual! Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome photos & videos! Love the way they kind of hover and perch at the same time feeding form the feeder.

  4. Thanks Lisa, Julie and Maki. I could have spent the entire day watching those little hummingbirds at the feeders. :)
