Texas hummingbird migration news, video


This video from the USA says about itself:

28 September 2015

In case you missed the show this morning, here’s about 60s of the hummingbird feeder frenzy that happens when most of the Perky-Pet Grand Master feeders are covered up for hummingbird banding at the site (look for the blue plate on the feeder in the background).

The hummingbirds are concentrated at the feeders that are still open (like our cam feeder and the feeders that have traps), which makes them easier to catch and band. 75 individuals were banded this morning by researchers from West Texas Avian Research, and we’ll post some highlights from the report later this week. Special thanks to Perky-Pet for sponsoring the cam and for WTAR’s assistance and enthusiasm in hosting it. Watch live here.
