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?
Hopefully, as the weather continues to warm and the flowers bloom, the other Hummingbirds will be returning soon.
Happy Spring, everyone!
