Kathi and Michael - This IS the same video I posted a link to earlier in September. It appears that the video was removed and I can't find it anywhere else. Too bad as it was really an interesting video about how the hummers drink nectar. [linked image]

While I was searching the internet, I found a great website called WatchKnowLearn. It has a list of many of the better hummingbird videos on it:

I have to laugh at the "YAY" Emoticons... using several of them together reminded me of all the students in my class when they get really wound up! Constant motion and noise .... [linked image]

I really enjoyed this particular video showing hummers in flight and feeding! Awesome captures!

Becky,

Thanks for posting this great link!! I had sent this video to Michael earlier in the day and he e-mailed me and said he couldn't get to it. I noticed that you had posted it earlier in the month on The Forum and another friend also sent it to Michael today and it's just gone (I tried looking on the internet and couldn't find it.) I wonder why??? This so strange!!

Anyhow, thanks so much. There's nothing worse than posting a non-working link to a forum [linked image] !!!

P.S. I love the emoticons (especially some of the new ones), but Bob, I think we'll need the snow emoticon (little snowman with falling snow) back up again---that dreaded season is coming soon!!

We are unfortunately unable to locate the original video of how a hummingbird feeds, which was fantastic.

Anyhow, someone from The Wisconsin Birding List suggested this video as a replacement and it is pretty good too:

Bob, thanks for adding the snow emoticon. Unfortunately, it's just around the corner.
