A Hover of Hummingbirds from Block Creek


Male Black-chinned Hummingbird - Jeff Wendorff PhotographerBlock Creek Natural Area has outstanding bird photography. Their feeders are never empty and the Black-chinned Hummingbirds are everywhere…. Seriously, you’ll get “tired” of shooting them. OK, not really, but you get the picture. Please note that I avoided the terrible pun that you could be reading now… Anyway, they are really territorial as you may know, so imagine there are 15 or more “jousting” over the 6 spots on the feeder. Captivating chaos!

The way we managed to get these flight shots was to pre-focus on a spot and wait, much like the technique described in my post about the Vermilion Flycatchers…HERE.

I hate to keep writing this, but since the map is here for your amusement and information, I must point out that reservations are required to join the fun at Block Creek Natural Area.
