It's funny Darlene, my hummers have been coming and going this summer. I get lots of activity at the feeder and then suddenly don't see them for a while. Then they appear again. I wonder what they're up to?

Enjoy yours, they are a real treat to watch!

Marilyn said...

Hi, how great. Ours aren't here yet! Love that feeder. You have the cutest bird feeders ever! Enjoy them. Marilyn

Amelia said...

Around here they have been coming off and on for several months now. I believe the weather has had something to do with it. I see two flying around the feeders...and usually by this time of the year there will be 5 or 6.

That is a great picture you captured of the one visiting your feeder.

Life is good! said...

they were worth the wait! what darling birds.

Libby said...

Good Morning Darlene!
Cute picture of a cute little guy!
(or girl) :)
Love hummingbirds! One summer we put out 2 feeders and filled them twice a day!
Enjoy their cuteness and personality !
Hope your having a great week :)

I love hummingbirds, but I have to make sure the garage door stays down because they fly in and can't figure out how to fly out! Then I have to open windows from the top and lure them with red fabric! LOL!

Julie Harward said...

Cute little things aren't they...I love it when they fly right up to you! But they sure do like to fight each other! :D

Joanna said...

I love when the hummingbirds come through. Such beautiful birds. However, I'm never lucky enough to have a camera with me or it seems I too slow at retrieving mine, because in any matter, they're gone so quickly.

Yea, Darlene! That is SO neat!

And I'm glad the raccoons didn't get you. ;-)

XO,

Beautiful photo! I love watching humingbirds but could never get them to go to the feeder I had. They seem to like certain flowers in the yard though.

Hi Darlene

Awe!! I love hummingbirds!! Beautiful picture!! If my whole yard wasn't a huge mess due to construction, I would have my little hummingbird feeder out too. I love watching them.

Hope you're having a great week!♥

Hi Darlene
Beautiful picture.
Really...yours have just come? We have had them for a couple of months already. They will continue now until it gets cooler in the early fall sometime...
They really are such amazing little ones..

Oh that's where some of my little guys went! As you know many of ours stay year round. The last two months I've had quite the time trying to keep the feeders full. They must have been eating alot to get ready for their trip to your house! This week the feeders are emptying slower.
Enjoy those cuties! Put some tall sticks out not far from the feeders-They love perching!
Hope you are having a wonderful week,
Robin~♥

Carla said...

I love hummingbirds. I've caught glimpses just recently of a few of them buzzing around the plants on my deck.

They are amazing, aren't they?!

Nancy said...

They are so precious! We use to have them, but last year they didn't show up...this yr we didn't put anything out for them. I always enjoyed watching them! Nancy

dana said...

Ahhhhh.......such a sweet photo!!! We haven't even put our feeder out this year. :( Is it too late?

Are your roasting in OK? It's supposed to hit the mid-90s today...it already feels like it. I'm staying "hunkered down" today....with a glass of iced tea!!

Have a good one...L, Dana
