Sitting on the porch, sipping some coffee, I heard the distinctive hum of wings. Sure enough, a hummingbird made a stop at the feeder (hung it yesterday). So – put out your feeders! The hummers are around.
I have been meaning to post that it’s hummer time. Folks in southwest Virginia – more likely the whole mid-Atlantic region – take note that hummingbirds are among us. I had been meaning to put up my feeders for a couple weeks, figuring it was migration time. This weekend, I finally hung one…then two more. As soon as I had the first feeder on its hook, I had a bird. Then 3. Already fighting. Crazy little birds. If they ever slow down, I’ll take some pictures.
