Hummers are very aggressive, are you sure they are "mating chases"?

Hummingbirds are not very social at all and live very solitary lives, only coming together to mate or grudging share a hummingbird feeder.

Happy to be back in my apartment for the next three days with two very needy cats competing for my attention tonight. Tomorrow, onco labs, ultrasound, and appointment; then fingerprinting and training for my stint as a 'guest researcher' at NIOSH. A visit from my husband, who has offered to clean my apartment and do laundry so that I can work on my Master's project and study. For all of which I am truly thankful.

Not sure, but I'm sure the 3 girls will sort it out between them. :mad2: :heart-on: :heart-on: :heart-on:


Does anyone know if the red color of the solution makes a real difference to the hummers ?

We bought another brand of dry "food" packets, but this brand has no color.
The feeder, itself, is red and these four birds are habituated to it.

We'll try it, but it's not as satisfying for us humans as seeing the original red goop.

Feeding. Evidently the color is important.

I have been asked to make a Dave Minion cake for a 3 yr old birthday. They're paying me and everything! This is my first commission!!

Congratulations, Ali! Make sure to take pictures so you can put them in your bakery's future website's gallery. :) (And so you can show them to us, of course.)

Yeah, especially post pictures so I can see who Dave Minion is.

What's making you happy today?
 
Nothing. Nothing is making me happy today. I am not happy. I cannot see happy from where I am. Happy may have been killed by a train.

Yo Dave

I think the only distinction with Dave is that he has hair. Besides that, he looks like all the other two eyed minions.
