My Hummer Buddies
by Allyson Smith
I feel like a kid waiting on Santa Claus in the springtime. When the first hummingbirds show up it's like getting up on Christmas morning. I'm always excited!
It's always a joy of nature to see the hummingbirds back home. Since the last week of August I've been putting out 9 gallons a week.
They have sure been on a feeding frenzy!
When I put out the nectar, I stand there and watch them as they fly all around me and even land on my shoulders and at times my head.
This morning I counted 42 hummingbirds. At one feeder there was 12! They were paired up at the feeder holes taking turns feeding.
What a blessing it is to share life with our hummer buddies!
