Nice. We've had a feeder out for a couple years and have yet to see one. The neighbor says she gets a few.

I have one out at camp and within an hour or so I had 3 hummingbirds, that's the most I've seen at on time. They are still pretty cool to watch.

I love how one seems to be greedy and chases the others away. While he's chasing one, another slips in for a drink. We have 2 feeders and he struggles keeping the other birds away.. LOL

I love watching the "Hummingbird Wars" around our feeders.

That's amazing - have never seen so many on the feeder at the same time.  Last year we had quite a few here, but never saw more than 2 at a time on the feeder, the turf wars were raging.  This year we haven't had so many - have only seen two buzzing around the feeders a couple of times, normally just one and it's not getting harassed by another one.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
