I just had to share with you this photo I captured a couple of days ago. My neighbor and I were out talking in her back yard about birds, of course. She was mentioning how no hummingbirds were coming to this glass feeder.
About 3 minutes after she said that, here was a visitor!
I have never been this close to a hummingbird. This is the female. The male came just a few minutes later, in full blown color.
We could actually hear them before we could see them, with their fast beating wings. It was truly amazing to be so close.
As far as our bluebirds, my neighbor now has five little babies that hatched a week ago.
This is the mother sitting on top of the house. Sorry it’s blurry. I forgot to switch my camera over to distance setting.
As far as my blue bird house ~~~~~ I have a family of wrens setting up residency. :( I’m a little sad it isn’t blue birds, but wrens do have a beautiful song.
I’m going out right now to start planting my flowers. It’s a little breezy and chilly, but the sun’s out. I do hope you have a fun weekend planned.
