Migrating hummingbirds have stopped into our campsite to refuel for their future journey south. Here are a few of these beautiful birds.

Wow, great pics! I've never been able to "catch" them in flight. I've never had a very good camera until recently either though.

Hummingbirds are a lot of fun to have around the camp, always buzzing and hovering around you, especially if you have on bright colors.

CJ, I am sure that you know that the hummingbirds migrate through Colorado. We stay in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains off of Hwy 24 at Mountaindale RV Park. We would get on average of 30 birds or more per day during Aug and early Sept and they feed very heavily to continue on to their voyage south. I bet you will get some good shots this year, thanks Bob

Wow - you nailed these little guys, Bob. I'm envious - I can't get a good shot of one of these characters to save my life! Great job, my friend.

Jer, what you have to do is just become very friendly and offer them a bribe. Thanks to all for commenting I am glad you enjoyed the birds. Here are a couple more of me and my little friends of Colorado.

Can anyone tell me what type of hummingbird the one with the plum colored wings is? There are 2 in this group of photos that look like the same thing.

I'm referring to the 2nd photo here. I'm thinking it may be the same kind as the 4th photo because the colors are similar. Thanks!

I believe that is an Anna hummingbird, Claudette. Maybe someone with a little more knowledge can add to the thread.
