Hummingbirds at the feeder in 4k – 5 in a series [Video] (1:13)

Hummingbirds at the feeder in 4k – 5 in a series

We have had regular visitors at our window-mounted feeder so I took the time to capture a few.

This video is available in 4k. I recently upgraded my camera and am trying it out on a variety of subjects.

Hummingbirds at the feeder in 4k - 5 in a series [Video] (1:13)

Hummingbirds are birds from the Americas that constitute the family Trochilidae. They are among the smallest of birds, most species measuring 7.5–13 cm (3–5 in) in length. Indeed, the smallest extant bird species is a hummingbird, the 5 cm (2.0 in) bee hummingbird weighing less than 2.0 g (0.07 oz).

They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings which flap at high frequencies audible to humans. They hover in mid-air at rapid wing-flapping rates, which vary from around 12 beats per second in the largest species, to in excess of 80 in some of the smallest. Of those species that have been measured in wind tunnels, their top speed exceeds 15 m/s (54 km/h; 34 mph) and some species can dive at speeds in excess of 22 m/s (79 km/h; 49 mph).[1][2]

Hummingbirds have the highest metabolism of any homeothermic animal.[3] To conserve energy when food is scarce, and nightly when not foraging, they can go into torpor, a state similar to hibernation, slowing metabolic rate to 1/15th of its normal rate.[4] — Wikipedia

Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooperii): Back Again – 6 in a series from My Word

This Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) returned to the garden again, so I’ll be sharing a series of video clips of its behaviors for those interested in raptors.

In this video, it’s bath time and an exuberant one at that!

Hummingbirds at the feeder – 25% Speed – 2 in a series

We have had regular visitors at our window-mounted feeder so I took the time to capture a few.

This video is slowed to 25% normal speed to allow you to see the hummingbirds and the behavior more clearly.
