Although I’ve kept two hummingbird feeders filled since early in the summer, they have definitely seen much more activity in the past week or so.
A very knowledgeable source (my friend, Donna) tells me that it’s because our tiny feathered friends are storing up energy for their long trip south. One recent afternoon, I noticed one of the hummers, not at the feeder, but on a nearby hydrangea branch.
These pictures were taken through our bedroom window. I wish I could have gotten clearer shots.
Because I took these pictures several different times over the course of the afternoon, I thought it was the same little hummie. When I uploaded the photos, I realized it was actually two different birds. Since this one doesn’t have the red throat, I’m guessing it’s a female…?
Those little wings will soon be covering many, many miles.
Safe travels, my little friends. We’ll be waiting for you next summer. (Sniff, sniff…)
