    the infamous 'no have' hummingbird

    I asked my wife about hummingbirds in thailand...she said 'no have'. So I sat in the sun for about an hour and tried to capture what I thot was an alcohol tremor.......BUT I am happy to report it was worth the 'dry period'.
    These guys are so elusive, I can't seem to get one in flight.....does anyone know what they are called?? I am not an avid birder, but I can't seem to find an illustrated book on thai birds, or trees for that matter.
    Any way here are a couple of the pictures.......Click image for larger version.

    A couple of suspects! Hard to see a lot of detail in your photos-not a criticism-I know how hard it is to take wildlife photos in Thailand (or elsewhere)-I have some lovely photos of flowers-problem is they are supposed to have butterflies on them as well!

    And my pictures of the little stand above the hummingbird feeder is supposed to have a . . . . you guessed it!

    Thailand certainly has many flowers of the type hummers frequent, which makes me wonder why they are supposedly exclusively an American continent bird. Evidently they have lived in other areas in previous times. Who knows, maybe they all came over on the Mayflower?

    Anyhoo, welcome to the forum thairan. I hope we hear more from you.

    No hummingbirds in Thailand. That's a sunbird, a female olive-backed sunbird perhaps?

    There are lots of directions for making your own feeder to be found by Google search and also on YouTube. The ideas range from using recyclable plastic to using glass bottles and purchased supplies.

    Have fun!

    Hummingbirds are restricted to the Americas from southern Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, including the Caribbean.
