It has been awhile and there have been a few false starts but finally, with the considerable help from friends I am able to share my first video with you. There is nothing very special about this video and you will learn nothing by watching it but I hope you enjoy it. I shot this video with my Nikon D3s at a lodge in Ecuador last January. This was one of 6 feeders around the patio and each one was equally busy.

The biggest birds are honeycreepers and bananaquits, the rest hummingbirds. There are over 130 species of hummingbirds in Ecuador  so a congregation like this is not that unusual. It is wonderful though.
