Really interesting footage of colorful hummingbirds hunting and feeding in slow motion and HD. This installment features some amazingly colorful irridescent males of several species; Allen's, Black-Chinned, and Anna's hummingbirds, up close and with their head-dresses all lit up, as well as some very cool shots of females hunting (and catching!) small bugs in mid-air! HD footage shot with a Canon HF100 HD camcorder (note the strange wing bending effects are an artifact of the HD camera's high speed shutter, NOT the birds' wings themselves). Slow motion footage filmed with a Casio EX-F1 high speed camera at 300 and 600fps rates. The music is "Intro" from the "Random" CD by Technician (yours truly). Thanks for watching/reading and I hope you enjoy the show! :-)

Sit back and enjoy some spectacular birds in 720p HD full screen! These images were shot over the past few weeks of October, 2009, as the summer species start to head south and the new resident immature male Anna's Hummingbirds begin to stake-out their territories. Birds featured here: Male Anna's 0:13 , 0:56 (red head), male Costa's 0:25 , 0:51 (purple head), female Allen's 0:22 , 0:30 (green/buff with tan/orange pastel sides and red throat patch), and female Anna's 0:44 , 1:13 (mostly green/buff like Allen's females but without the orange sides). A few shots of an immature male Anna's Hummingbird looks like his face is ragged and worn ( 0:48 , 0:33 )but he's actually just growing in his adult male plumage and will have a spectacular irridescent red head like the other males when the feathers are all grown-in. All birds shown here were filmed in Santa Clarita, CA using a Canon SX10-is "Robo-Cam", running a motion detection script in CHDK (a firmware hack for many Canon cameras). The music is "Oberion" from the "Silicon Landscape" CD by Technician. Enjoy the show!
A montage of HD and high speed footage showing these fascinating little birds from 1/4 to 1/40 actual (realtime) speed. Cameras placed in a number of different angles give some new perspectives, and a top-down angle shows the bird lapping-up the nectar with what appears to be a forked tongue! Who knew? :-) Some great chases and flying scenes round out this video. HD semi-slow-motion (1/4 realtime) video shot with a Canon HF100, Slow motion (1/10 - 1/40 realtime) lower res footage shot with a Casio EX-F1. The soundtrack features new music "timewarp" from Technician. Enjoy the show! '------------------------------------------------------------ Notes about the wing movements shown: As it turns out, the first half of this video, which was shot with a Canon HF100 HD camcorder and high-speed shutter, makes it LOOK like the wings are sometimes beating alternately, but that is in fact an effect of the CMOS scan and shutter. The last half of this video (from 1:33 on) was filmed with a Casio EX-F1 high speed/slow motion camera, and shows the wing movement more accurately - they do indeed beat in parallel rather than alternately. :-)
A fine rehearsal gospel song of the Hummingbird old timers with James Walker leading.
In this installment we see several colorful summer species, including a male Allen's and a male Black-Chinned, showing off his difficult-to-video purple neckband. These birds migrate into the area (Santa Clarita, California) in April/May where they nest and breed over the summer. As temperatures rise, natural nectar sources become mroe scarce and the hummingbird feeders become eagerly sought-after resources. Oddly, many feeders sit idle most of the time as these aggressive little birds vigorously hoard the feeder and spend more time chasing away other birds than feeding! "Why can't we all just... get along?" (Jack Nicholson, Mars Attacks) :-) The soundtrack is "Oberion" from the Silicon Landscape CD by Technician, available at JCMDI.COM. Happy birding!
Because hummingbirds are so small and so fast, sometimes you hear them before you see them.
You might first hear the buzz of their wings beating more than 50 times a second, or maybe their sharp chip sound will catch your attention. Either way, July is

nevershoutnever! Hummingbird. Lyrics: I like you Girl you don't got nothing to prove to me I know that times have been rough for the both of us But i'll pray for a change You see this world has lots to offer, but in time we'll go talking if this love is what we say it is I'm sure we will go far and with a girl as sweet as you there's not much else I can do but fall for you You know that I'm a wreck And You know I cant breathe At the edge of my seat with each word As the months turn into years just know that i will wait here For you Cause I pray for a change You see this world has lots to offer, but in time we'll go talking if this love is what we say it is I'm sure we will go far And with a girl as sweet as you There's not much else I can do but fall for you (for you) (for you) (for you) You see this world has lots to offer, but in time we'll go talking if this love is what we say it is I'm sure we will go far And with a girl as sweet as you There's not much else I can do but fall for you
Not planes...just some HD video for discussion. There's been some discussion about recording and encoding etc. I recently bought a Flip Mino HD. I think it's great but does not do well in low light and needs to be about 6-10 feet from it's subject. I taped this hummingbird flying in and eating and then did a slow motion version afterwards. Even at 30fps, the wings still blur. You can see the bird feeder is slightly blurry but the rest of the shot is not. It is an amazing camera to carry in your pocket though. Sound is also pretty good. I exported the video using Quicktime Pro using 1280x720 HD with deinterlace checked and automatic for frames, frame reordering checked and encoding set to high and multiple pass (high), AAC 44.1 VBR 192. It yielded a file around 260 MB.
A male Anna's Hummingbird puts on a spectacular show in slow motion. The camera setup was placed so that the bird would look in the direction of the sunlight, so that the light angle would cause his irridescent headress to light-up a brilliant red - a difficult angle to get in many cases. Shot with a Canon HF100 using several shutter speeds and framerates for best visualization of the bird's movement and irridescent colors.
Spectacular HD footage of a female Allen's Hummingbird with wing beats in perfect sync with the high-speed shutter at times, giving the illusion the wings are stopped! A female Anna's Hummingbird also makes an appearence... Details: Filmed on 3-6-2009, just as Spring begins and the seasonal/migratory species begin their return to the area. This footage was shot with a Canon HF100 HD video camcorder, 1/2000 sec. shutter speed, 1080p, 30fps. The footage was then slowed-down even further to 1/4 speed, giving an effective frame rate of 7.5fps. The first bird shown is a female Allen's Hummingbird, and has a faster wingbeat than the Anna's hummingbird (2nd bird show). At times the wingbeats were a perfect multiple of 30, so the camera's shutter froze the wings in the same prosition in the wingstroke cycle for several frames in a row - giving the illusion that the wings had actually stopped moving for short periods of time. Notice the bird is swallowing and looking around while she seems to hang there otherwise motionless. Really cool effect!
Once hummingbirds discover a location as their source of nectar, they will continue to return. You can design a garden to attract these small wonders, encouraging them to make your garden their favorite "store," maybe even their home.
Watch the movements of these fascinating little birds up close and slow in Hi Def! Several birds (Anna's Hummingbirds, males and females) are shown at different angles and shutter speeds.
The Dixie Hummingbirds are an influential American gospel music group, spanning more than 75 years from the jubilee quartet style of the 1920s, through the "hard gospel" quartet style of Gospel's golden age in the 1940s and 1950s, to the eclectic pop-tinged songs of the present era. Formed in 1928 in Greenville, South Carolina, by James B. Davis and his classmates, they sang in local churches until they finished school, then started touring throughout the South. Lead singer Ira Tucker joined the group in 1938 at age 13, and they signed with Decca Records. In addition to his formidable vocal skills, Tucker introduced the energetic showmanship - running through the aisles, jumping off stage, falling to his knees in prayer - copied by many quartets that followed. Tucker also took the lead in the stylistic innovations adopted by the group, combining gospel shouting and subtle melismas with the syncopated delivery made popular by The Golden Gate Quartet, as well as adventuresome harmonies, which the group called "trickeration", in which Paul Owens or another member of the group would pick up a note just as Tucker left off. The group relocated to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the 1940s. During the years, a number of talented singers starred in the group--their bass, William Bobo, baritone Beachy Thompson, James Walker, who replaced Owens, and Claude Jeter, who went on to star for The Swan Silvertones. The Hummingbirds added a guitarist, Howard Carroll, who added even more ...

Photography is still the most popular and easiest way to record a moment in time and capture ever lasting memories. Cindy is the photographer, Sony DSLR is her camera and I am usually right beside her or near by filming the action.

www.hotroast.com - Is it a baby hummingbird? A cute, fuzzy bug? A flying miniature lobster? SCROLL DOWN FOR THE ANSWER o_O ANSWER At first glance this cute and busy little critter looks like a baby hummingbird. Look at how he moves! But after further investigation I discovered this bird is a bug impostor! See the antennae and proboscis? He (or she) is a Hummingbird Clearwing Moth (Hemaris Thysbe). Yup, a diurnal moth. Cheeky little bugger!!! And much cuter than a mosquito! Music: "Yage Camera - Travelin' Mix" by Audio Morphology
