Lunch time!


Lunch time for these little cuties lasts all day and into the evening, rain or shine. We currently having at least three red-throated hummingbirds living in the area who jockey for position at the feeder with the male usually acting as king-of-the-hill. The females outsmart him now and then however, and one of them also shows some aggression if another female tries to feed at the same time. It isn't as if there aren't portals so they could all feed at once!
I know, I know, all I seem to post lately are bird pictures. But I find them fascinating during the summer. We currently have the third pair of bluebirds nesting in the bird house, she's sitting on four beautiful little blue eggs right now. They should be hatching soon. With any luck at all for this brood we will have had a round dozen fledging from the birdhouse this summer.

I have to remember to get my feeder put up earlier next year Mary - I haven't seen a single one since spring. I do enjoy seeing yours though. They are so special!
