Hummingbird Au Naturel

Hummingbird Au Naturel

Postby sidd finch » Thu Apr 08, 2021 10:40 am

I have enjoyed recording our hummingbirds as the re-fuel at the bird feeder. But, I was finally able to record a hummingbird in its natural feeding environment. Recorded on an iPhone.

I love hummingbirds! They haven't shown up here yet, but soon. The colors are so vibrant on this Sidd.

My mother was a huge fan of them. I took this back around 2008 at her house with my trusty Canon ZR65 miniDV. Still works!

Beautiful! Very, very nice on the iPhone. The colors are gorgeous. Did I ever mention that I love this stuff? He flapped his wings 10,341 times. I counted.

Thanks Ed I enjoyed your video you captured some cool shots. I am really amazed at the iPhone footage really nice footage.

I am impressed Dave, I can only count up to 9,764. So cool you have a command of the extra numbers. Because of this when people ask me how many times the birds flapped their wings I have to respond with a single word "yes!"

I think we have the same iPhone (SE) and I love the way it records video. I am using the Filmic Pro app and recording at 4k 30fps. I need to start experimenting around with adding a macro lens and seeing if I can capture the birds with the iPhone. Or maybe a salamander hunt.....

We have hummingbird wars, they are very territorial little birds. They claim their space and then fight to protect it from others. It's always interesting to see who wins the battle and gets crowned king of the feeder. Sometimes is a male but quite often it is a female. We usually have 4 feeders spread out about 20+ feet apart. It is really something when 1 hummingbird tries to control them all at the same time ! That's when the wars start.

In our backyard when the bird feeder is low, the female Hummingbird buzzes my head almost like she is telling me... Hey fill up the feeder. She fly's about a foot from my head. Cracks me up every time

Wow, that awesome Sidd ! I have seen videos of people feeding them by hand with a little feeder, very cool.

Love hummers! Great stuff Sidd. I need to get my feeder out. One summer I went fishing for hummers. Set the focus manual and fired with remote.
