They're BAAACK!!!!

Saw the first today - female. She hovered by the place I always hang the feeder...so, she must be a returning visitor!

YAAAY!

For some reason they decided to stay here all year. This is the first time. (Brooksville.) They usually leave early summer and return in late March.

Behind Sunken Gardens are the largest Cape Honeysuckle I have ever seen, also other large vines all in a mass of confusion and flowers..fantastic... bees galore also hummers I'm sure but I didn't actually see any when I drove by... they are covering the wall and cascading down... on the street behind the Gardens, you can't miss it.... but here in my little patch, I haven't seen a hummer for a long time now... sally

Saldut - Sunken Gardens is so beautiful...I love those cascading flowers.

I quickly ran out and hung two feeders.....have not see another hummer since yesterday.

They don't give you a second chance, do they???

I rarely see a humming bird in my yard, but today about 6 pm I saw one swooping up to an oak tree. All I could see was shades of brown.
Here's a list of Top Ten Things You Can Do to Attract Hummingbirds. At least, I have spiderwebs!
