Hummingbirds



Where are the hummingbirds this year?
I'm ready!




They must be stopped at one of the outlet malls along the way.
Have y'all seen any yet?

There's at least one about 2 hours northeast of you!

I haven't seen them yet, either...hopefully soon! You've got just the thing that they love, so they should be there soon.

I saw my first one yesterday while outside in my backyard shaking my fist at the hedge hog pups...I think I scared it away poor thing....

Sandi, just a note that your wine will ship later this week. Didn't want you to think I ahd forgotten about you. My grandpa Jack sits in the living room that has all glass windows loking out into the garden and I swear our hummingbirds had "dog fights" in the air like in fighter pilots n a war, they spin, dive bomb and tangle with one another. So entertaining!!

Tut-Tut~ Just after I posted this she must have flown from your feeder to mine!
Andrea~ I do think they are a little late this year, keep watching.
Early Bird~ I'll have to visit your blog for the rest of the story.
Sara~ I can't wait to try my 'slow burn' wine!

I saw one on the front porch here on the KY/Tn border...I didn't have anything for him...he just said 'trick or treat' then left empty winged...

We have one of those hummingbird feeders, too, in New Mexico, not in NYC,.

PAT said...

We saw one hummingbird at the lake a couple of weeks ago. We keep a feeder there. Others do to. Glad of that, as we don't always get back to fill the feeder.

J saw one by the patio, Sunday and put a feeder out. Haven't seen it since!!

We saw two a couple of days ago. Around here, where it's soooo hot during the day, they show up early in the morning and later in the evening. I've only seen those two so far but the level of the nectar is slowly going down. Perhaps I should get up earlier!

So that's what it is! A hummingbird feeder, must be great to see them out in the open!

Baking Soda said...

hummingbirds I mean, not feeders...
::blushes and grins::

Gattina said...

I've been living here for 5 years, actually only saw hummingbirds once or twice... oh I love to see it!

sher said...

We have year round resident hummers here. They are so much fun to watch, aren't they?

sandi said...

Shabby~ what a sad tail!
MotherPie~ have you seen any visitors yet?
Pat~ she must have flown to my feeder!
Barb~ I think you need a little time to sit and just watch ;)
Baking Soda~ :{)

sandi said...

Gattina & Sher~ y'all posted at exactly the same time. Great minds think alike~

I haven't seen a single one either. But then again, once our Baltimore Orioles arrive, the hummingbirds disappear. The orioles got here first, so I suppose the hummingbirds just may never come to the Cape! =(

Sandi,
I saw something somewhere about some health freaks feeding hummingbirds sugar substitutes in their feeders -- apparently because sugar is "evil."

Cheryl said...

Never saw one. We just get lots and lots of squirrels and rabbits.

Carla said...

One just flew by my place the other day. I need to get the feeder out. it's on my list of actionables for this week.

Lana said...

They were a couple weeks late coming to our home here in TN Sandi. Glad to read that they finally showed up for you. They are such sweet little things!

Love the shot of the hummingbird feeder!!!

Have yet to see one this year. Will keep eyes peeled.

BTW, you've now been tagged on the HOV (different from the one you did on me)

what amazing video. I had to call my son to come in and watch.
We are SO getting a feeder this year.
