The Return of the Hummingbirds!

Late yesterday afternoon, Michael and I had decided to enjoy the beautiful weather along with watching the birds and the squirrels feed.  Because there was so much backyard activity I had my camera ready (every day there seems to be a new bird or critter).  I had noticed the Hummingbird Feeders were getting low, and because it had been so long since I originally filled them, I assumed the nectar was evaporating or the bees/ants were drinking it.  So, I went ahead and cleaned them out and refilled them.

As luck would have it, I had just laid my camera down on the table, when Michael pointed to the newly filled feeders!  There he was our first Hummingbird of the year!

I think he was glad I had refilled the feeders because he took several sips!

 

I’ve read Hummingbirds have been known to migrate back to the same area each year.   I wonder if this little guy is a repeat visitor?

If you were following me last year, you know how much I love these little fairies.   Pic of the Week 071517- “God Winked”        Thoughts: “Hummingbird, Don’t Fly Away”

Hopefully, as the weather continues to warm and the flowers bloom, the other Hummingbirds will be returning soon.

Happy Spring, everyone!
