I was tickled when I captured this one landing.
They always are constantly looking around to see if others are around. They start fighting each other off the feeder and I see them flitting and flying all over the place.
Here's one coming in for a landing.
This is the other thing that attracts them by our deck. Two rose of Sharon's full of blooms.
Saturday morning before we left I asked Mr. Savvy to refill the feeder which he has never done before. For some reason miss Bailey has an absolute fit when I open the window and get the feeder down to bring in and refill. She barks the loudest high pitch bark you have ever heard. It is so funny. Well, yesterday all of a sudden I hear Mr. Savvy yelling that two hummers had gotten in. I was like, what?! That had never happened with me. Leave it to a man to invite them in! Bailey had a FIT! She almost caught one while we were trying to guide them back to the open window. She nipped one and I yelled no at her. The poor little thing was hanging off the bottom of my urn. Well, we finally got them both out. We couldn't leave until we did. Did you know they chirp? I did not know that.
Anyway that is my story and I am sticking to it!
They will be gone soon until next year. Bye little hummers.
Do you get hummingbirds where you live?
4 cups of water
1 cup of sugar
Bring to a boil and then let it cool. Pour in a container and store in the fridge.
No need to add red food coloring. They say it is not good for the birds.
Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.
