A blog of a very simple life.
Nice hummingbird shots! They are cute little guys! My mom gets them year round in southern cal.. it's still too gray & chilly here in oregon... but hopefully soon~ they are so much fun to watch!
I know it's spring here, in the NW corner, because the buzzards are back!
Woof! Woof! You are very lucky to have such a awesome patio view. Great looking bird. What is it? Enjoy the lovely Spring weather. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
I love those shimmering green feathers. Nice shots!
Nice hummers. I don't try for them but have a friend who does and loves 'em. 4 honey to one water? 4 water to one honey? 2 to 2? That's why I stick to cardinals and such.
They are so much fun to look at!
Very nice! We try so hard to get those and it never seems to work!Sam
My boyfriend's mom is a huge hummingbird fan and tracks their yearly migration. I think I'll link her this post.
Thanks Sam for sending this link on. I'd love it if she knows which hummingbird this is. A costa's? an Anna's? a black chinned? they are all too similar for us to tell!Banjomyn, right now our guys love the natural stuff. But I have one of the 'flying saucer' style feeders and we do 4 waters 1 sugar, no honey. Seems to work here - we boil water and sugar in microwave and then store in frig, adding as they drink (sometimes, every day).
It's funny when I have folks from Europe on a Huntington tour. They go over the moon when they spot a hummingbird. You can always tell the natives; we start squawking when we see the geese. I guess the geese take a short vacation here on their way to Washington or Canada.
Our Aunty lives on a retired farm and gets about 20 hummers every afternoon about 4 pm. They are total conversation stoppers and drink up the Hummer juice fast!Kisses,Stella
