Our hummingbird feeder is suctioned to a window off the family room. I turn and stare each time I pass by. Lately I’ve noticed a whole lot of hummingbird activity.
At one point this afternoon five hummers were simultaneously sipping nectar at my window!
The problem is, the feeder was filled this morning. There’s still another hour of daylight. It won’t last through tomorrow night.
That’s crazy. The hummingbirds like Helaine’s cooking as much as I do! Not only that, they’re not scared of us. I get buzzed while filling the feeder. These shots were taken handheld, no more than two feet away.
I thought with loads of flowers in bloom our tiny friends would opt to eat organic. No such luck. If anything, they’re getting thirstier.
Maybe I can post a note asking them to slow down a little?
