    Cool! We love the hummers that come to our feeders. During the spring they seem to fight over the feeders. They're back now and everybody is peaceful, but hungry! Just recently found out that we don't need to remove the feeders to force them to migrate. They'll leave when they are ready.
    Thanks for sharing the pics. [​IMG]

    Do you not have hummingbirds in England? That would be a bummer. I've spent many an enjoyable hour watching their antics around the feeders.

    Thanks for posting your pics!! The last of our local population left this week [​IMG] It is so sad when they go!! They drain 2 big feeders here each day during the summer. We have to buy sugar from Sam's club to feed them all :eek: Its nice to see pics of them as they head for warmer places [​IMG]
