Jewels Of The Davis Mountains: 2017 West Texas Hummingbird Cam Highlights

14 December 2017

From North America’s smallest breeding bird—the Calliope Hummingbird—to the comparably colossal Blue-throated Hummingbird, relive the rich diversity of tiny fliers (and more) that visited the West Texas hummingbird cam in 2017.

The West Texas Hummingbird Feeder Cam is nestled in the mountains outside Fort Davis, Texas, at an elevation of over 6200 feet. This site hosts a total of 24 Perky Pet Grand Master hummingbird feeders, and during peak migration can attract hundreds of hummingbirds from a dozen species that are migrating through the arid mountains.

Enjoy watching these three male Broad-tailed Hummingbirds sip from the feeder together while you can, because these magenta-throated fliers won’t be so willing to share each other’s company come breeding season. Breeding males can be highly aggressive birds, known to dive at and chase away unwelcome visitors to their territories.

Juvenile and Adult Male Rivoli’s Hummingbirds Swap Time In West Texas — Sept. 13, 2017

The heavy traffic on the West Texas hummingbird cam provides a great opportunity to compare plumage differences within the same species. Here, a pair of eye-catching male Rivoli’s Hummingbirds swap time at the feeder. An immature male, with his scaled plumage, light green back, and iridescent green splotched throat stops in first. Soon he will exhibit the blackish, dark green body, brilliant teal gorget, and purple crown like that of the adult male that hovers in after him.
