It's funny how one tiny bird can make your day ;)

It was just a windy, chilly, lousy day outside yesterday, but this little girl sure did make it better!

If you'd like to share your 2010 first sighting pics here, please do!

Happy Hummer season to all.

Congrats Tracey! Hopefully you will see plenty more in the next few days.

I did not have a camera ready when I saw my first hummer on 4/29. Have not seen one since. :c(

What kind of feeder is that? It looks like a saucer type feeder, but with a perky pet top. I don't recall seeing a perky pet saucer feeder.

Yes Ken, Perky Pet Oasis. I initially purchased at Lowes for $10, maybe 2 years ago, then they stopped selling them. I still check to this day, and nothing. I purchased additional ones on Amazon. I love them; so easy to clean, no spillage, hummers have no issue with them. I have 4.
I only had the camera outside because I was attempting to get a shot of the 2 mockingbirds at my suet feeder, but I failed. Hummer came by; she didn't flinch when I walked across the deck to get it. That's always a good!
