and they were everywhere! Wendell and I were taking a break on the porch and it was like we were being attacked. I swear it seemed that their were a few dozen of little hummingbirds fighting for a space on one of the three feeders we have hanging up.
Can you see the four of them? According to my father it is suppose to be very odd for two, let alone four to share a feeder at one time but these guys did. I think this is definately my best picture of these special, little birds.
I think we ended up sitting out there for an hour before we got busy and finished working around the tomatoes in the garden. We later ran back into town and picked up a few more feeders. I don't know if that is going to be a good thing or not but we will find out. I know while I was filling up the new feeders, I had several fly up too me.
I think the new feeders will be a good investment as we love spending time on the porch and these little creatures are such fun entertainment. It is my goal to someday be able to hold the feeder while they feed. We will see.....
