Hummingbirds

We started out with six hummingbirds in mid-April and then it got cold and up until two weeks ago we only had one.  I kept the fresh nectar out for him and finally we have five which I hope will multiply soon.

Normally I have five to seven feeders on the front porch by now but they’re only using the two and I’m refilling the feeders about twice a week.

I love these little guys and could watch them for hours.  I make sure they have plenty of their favorite flowers in the yard as well.

They’re quite territorial at the moment and they whizzed right in front of my face and caused Sassy to change positions on the porch for fear of getting “hummed”!!
