They sing!

I was watching two hummingbirds flying and playing on my back yard, and suddenly one of them started to sing/make noises. I had no idea they do that. Have seen them many times, and never heard them sing!

It is fun to hear them isn't it?! There is a male that visits my yard who is very vocal. I found a site that has recordings of many different hummers. Here is the address for the anna's hummingbird.
You should see a "Listen to Call" beside the picture. Under the "Range Map" there is a list of other hummingbirds.

RE: They sing!

So, they do sing! I thought I was hearing voices :-).
The "Anna's" site is great - I enjoyed listening to many birds' calls. Thanks Sherca!

RE: They sing!

Thanks I think I have Anna's They do a lot of twittering besides trying to dive bomb the other hummers.
