Around the feeders

Ruby-throated hummingbirds around the feeders at the Tennessee National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center – Big Sandy.


Occasionally, you would also see them resting on small branches overlooking the Tennessee River.

  1. So pretty – I haven’t seen any here yet, likely because it has been so chilly. My neighbor used to have hummer feeders around the house near all the windows – they were a joy to watch, but after she passed away, her son threw all her miscellaneous feeders in the garbage, so no more birds of any kind stopping by sadly.

      • You’re welcome Rebecca – I shared it with my friend Marge and she’d watch it for hours – there were three live cams and she would flip from one to the other. One was the feeder as I recall and maybe the other was a fountain. I hope the mother was in her nest when you viewed it – she was last night when I sent you the link. There are many links for various animals or birds at that site and you, a nature lover, could get lost there as I have.

      • I’m glad you saw her on the nest – she is always looking around at her surroundings. I wonder how they feed the little ones? I’ll have to look it up … maybe they are able to fly earlier than other hatchlings to get to the feeders.
