I'm getting buzzed

rvird01March 19, 2014

by male hummers :) Saw my first one last weekend and have at least 3 males. I have been sitting in my garden the past couple evenings as the sun goes down. They just keep dive bombing and buzzing each other. Last night I put on my red pjs and laughed as they kept checking me out...thinking they had met the biggest red flower on earth. Lol

Wonderful story, Rhonda!
Can't wait to see my first hummer of the year.
I keep checking the map and crossing my fingers. Laugh.

I spotted a beautiful male Ruby Throat hummingbird at feeder yesterday and today. I left a feeder up and fresh all year. I had a few sightings of migration, last one Jan. 4th, so I hope this hummer is here to stay. I will add another feeder soon. I hope to take a pic., as soon as he stays at feeder long enough. I hope his friends join him!

Robert,
It shouldn't be long before you see them. I'm hoping this will be a banner year. Normally, I only see one male at a time this early in the year, so I'm thrilled that I'm consistently seeing 3.

Nanaboo,
I kept up one feeder up through winter as well, but didn't see any hummers. Hope to see your pics soon.

Rhonda
