Yes, I would bet on the Hummers against any of NASA's fancy jets! Every year the birds have more flight time than any human Pilot. The short time they spend at Kates Cabin every year is similar to a "Summer Camp" for kids. They use this time to sharpen all competitive skills with the interaction of each other and the bees over the nectar feeders. I have never seen a bird killed by another bird or any eyes poked out. They defend territory by day, but at the end of the day, they all sit together and eat, then all sleep in the trees close to each other. They travel in small groups. I feel the information that these birds are loners is incorrect as they are very social that I observe and document. I encourage You all to make your own observations and post them for consideration by the Scientists. Many things are yet to be revealed about our wonderful world! Get Involved! If You look, You will see!!! Enjoy!

...this is brendasue signing off from Rainbow Creek. See You next time! I hope You are enjoying viewing the photostudies in the G+Albums. I will be posting everyday of the migration. Just telling You now: One day soon the tiny birds will just be gone and there will be no more photo ops until next August. That's how it is-They just fly away to Mexico every year. Now they will always be in the Albums, recorded time in History.
So enjoy while they are here!
