First hummer I've seen all spring/summer
I have tried for the 7 years we have lived here to attract hummingbirds-feeders, flowers,etc. I would occasionally see one maybe in May but nothing after that. I haven't seen any this year. I figured it is just way to hot here.
Yesterday while sitting on my deck I looked over at my huge butterfly bush and what do you know, there was a hummer at it. I watched it feed then it flew to our aspen tree and sat for quite a while.
I was so excited, my family just rolled their eyes at me. Before we moved here, we lived in the mountains and I would have to fill 3 feeders every day, because we had so many birds. I really miss them.
