Hummingbird convention

We seem to have a lot of bird life, eh? Well, we also have a serious number of broad-tailed hummingbirds.

Mom often jokes that we need to get an air traffic controller out there. Sometimes the beagle gets into snapping fights with them as they buzz around her face.

We have two feeders. Above, you can see two females sitting on the one. Once, two males got into a fight, and one was collapsed on the deck, and Mom had to run out and shoo the other away. Then she picked up the stunned male and took him to the other side of the house. He recuperated and flew away.

They empty both feeders every single day.

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
