Hummingbirds Are Enjoying the Rain
Three hummers were playing this morning, and actually sharing space on the feeder. No fighting. Perhaps they understand that they ALL need to eat and get ready for migration.
This afternoon I was out on the porch when the second wave of rain came in, and this cute little hummer was perching on a bare Willow branch, enjoying his shower. I didn't know they flew in the rain, but he kept darting out a few feet and then back to the branch again, over and over again. It was too funny. It was a light rain, else I would imagine a good size raindrop would knock one to the ground, they're so tiny.
I'm going to be sad to see them go for the year, but am certainly enjoying the moments of entertainment for now.
