Our hummingbirds have finally arrived! It must take ours a while to find us because our neighbors have had hummingbirds all summer! Granted, we don’t put out our feeders until we actually see them coming up because in the heat the sugar crystalizes quickly and we have to fight off the wasps.
They’re so much fun to watch when they first get here because they will come in under the porches and look inside the house as if to ask “Anybody Home? We’re here for supper! Is it ready yet?”
The first one to show was a little female. Now we have her and a ruby throated male. He always comes right up and looks inside the house first before going to the feeder. I don’t know if he’s making sure the coast is clear or if he’s checking to see if the coffee’s on….
Well, the coffee’s on!!
