Hummingbirds


I finally got around to hanging my hummingbird feeder yesterday afternoon after making the sugar syrup (2 cups of water, half cup of sugar - bring to a boil to dissolve sugar and then let cool). How excited are we to watch these fascinating little creatures! This morning I saw as many as four at one time in the yard. They are so tiny and petite. I now wonder why I waited so long to put the feeder out?

Hope you're having an enjoyable weekend!

You are so lucky! I have two hummers that spent the summer with me. But up here in PA, I think it's gotten where they are starting to head back south. I will keep my feeders up for another month for any stragglers but it's sad to see them go.
