Return of the hummingbirds

It's the time of year for the hummingbirds to return to our house, sort of a miniature version of the swallows returning to San Juan Capistrano. That means it's time again for the hummingbird cam. Look in the sidebar for this image.

The bad news is that I'm using an old LinkSys cam (WVC11B) and its web server wants browsers to install an ActiveX control to display the video. That means you'll need Internet Exploder (with appropriate security) or if you run Firefox, an add-on that supports ActiveX (like IE Tab). If you're using some other browser you'll have to roll your own, more's the pity.

Here's a short video from August, '07 of half-a-dozen hummingbirds crowding around the feeder. (This did not come from the Hummingbird cam; it was shot with the Sanyo C40.)
