Hummingbirds can hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings 12--80 times per second. They can also fly backwards. They are among the smallest of birds about 3-4 inches long. Their name derives from the characteristic hum made by their rapid wing beats. They can fly at speeds exceeding 34 miles per hour. Hummingbirds drink nectar, a sweet liquid inside certain flowers. and by preying on insects and spiders.
This 2 hour video was filmed in January, 2012 in Southern California near San Diego. Most of the birds are Anna's Hummingbird which is a year-round resident. You can occassionally see other hummingbirds that have migrated from Costa Rica. There are a total of 3 feeders which consume about 2 gallons per day of (use 4 parts water to 1 part sugar. Ie: 30 oz container. 30/5=6. 6x4=24 oz water, 6 oz granulated sugar; no dye has been added). The amount consumed suggest these feeders support hundreds of hummingbirds. The males have more colorful plummage. The location of the feeder is in the backyard overlooking a golf course. The feeders have been at this location for 3 years! Just before sunset they become numerous. For more about hummingbirds click here: http://www.hummingbirds.net/
