The Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds are back. Saturday morning I was moving seedlings onto our deck when one buzzed me. If you’ve had a hummingbird zip past your head at warp speed you will know what I mean — they make a very distinctive sound.
I called to Dan and he got out our feeders while I made a sugar solution. We filled 2 feeders and hung them out. I did not see any activity Saturday or Sunday, but this morning while having breakfast Dan got these photos of a female hummingbird at about 5:45. I have since seen a male at the feeder.I just love these Humzinger feeders — they provide nice perches, are easy to clean, and my other feeder (not pictured) has a built-in ant moat and the nectar recipe molded onto the cover. I just love the hummingbirds, and am looking forward to being buzzed all summer long.
