Hummers in slow mo!

In addition to our farm critters and pets, we’re house-sitting for neighbors.  Usually we just take care of their cats and plants, but this time of year it’s prime hummingbird season!  This swarm of hummers polishes off 4 cups of homemade hummingbird food a DAY!  If you watch closely you’ll see two different hummers come to the feeder opposite each other that are bigger and have white tipped tails.  I believe they are female Rufous hummingbirds, and they sure do intimidate the native Ruby Throated clan!
