Hummers are Back!
Have the rest of you seen them, too?
I was outside taking pictures the middle of last week, and low and behold, a hummingbird buzzed by my head to check out the feeder. I don't know why, but I didn't take it in this past winter and it was still hanging there...but had not put food in it yet.
It checked real good to see if it might be missing anything, but realized it was totally empty, and went on its merry way. I could have kicked myself for not having food out, but really thought it might be a little early. By noon the following day, I had all three feeders filled and hanging outside. The humming bird returned and I saw it twice before this past weekend.
Saturday, my sister-in-law was visiting and we were outside looking at the gardens. Low and behold, this year we have a "friend". There are two of them - a male and a female. I have yet to get any pictures this year...got some neat ones last year...but am determined it will happen! Smiles And to think I HAD the camera on and in my hand when it came the first time! Drats!!
Just curious how many other people have them back now, and where you live. I'm in the Des Moines area.
