Summer Hummingbirds

Well, the hummingbirds made it back in late May and immediately took over the feeder that hangs just outside my kitchen window. I mix my own sugar water and for those who get concerned - the glass is colored red, not the water. ;) Anyway - the pair that was here took turns guarding the feeder from other Ruby Throated Hummingbirds - and each other. It still amazes me that I can see them in the air and spot them on tree branches - even without my glasses on.

One last note - I know it's Labor Day weekend and folks are starting to think about gearing up towards feeding the winter birds, but don't forget these tiny little creatures need enough fuel to make the long journey south. Refill your feeders and leave them out as long as possible!
