One Measly Photo...

And here it is...
I put up the hummingbird feeders on Monday.... almost immediately Bill heard that familiar sound of one flying close by...  but it was a day or so later before I actually saw one.

By Wednesday I was seeing one but wasn't quick enough to snap a photo...

Today... by golly, the little rascal has been zipping in and out all day...  and although it's not real good,  I got him.

Here in Ohio we get only the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds...
But that's okay with me....  I'll enjoy whatever stops by.

However....  this morning I heard the Wood Thrush behind our rig...  their sound has to be one of the most beautiful bird songs ever!  Later today I heard the Towhee telling me to "drink your tea"....

Yes, it's really springtime here...  even at 32 degrees at 6:00 this morning, that's so typical for April.

That's All For Today!

  1. I need to get my hummingbird feeder up very soon. I want to plant a few flowers that will attract more. I love watching them.

  2. We enjoy our hummingbird feeder and have had them coming for some time now. We get the migration, but a few stay around here for the summer. Good picture of that hummer, they are hard to get.

  3. Ah, lucky you - we won't see any Hummers until the end of July!

  4. When the hummers come, they knock on the door if the feeders aren't out.

  7. We've been getting quite a few hummers as well ... managed a photo through the windshield yesterday, but I'm hoping the weather will cooperate for me to sit outside with the camera ready in the next day or two.

  8. Oh how I miss seeing hummingbirds. We had so many at our feeders and flowers in Southern California, especially in Palm Springs.
