Hummingbird Heaven! & a bear! UPDATED


Hummingbird Heaven!
That is what we must appear to be to these Hummingbirds.  
We have a feeder at the front of the house, and in the back.  

The front feeder is refilled 3 times daily....that's right, daily!

The back feeder, once daily.  Because there is one mean and
ornery bird who sits near and guards it and chases all the other
hummingbirds away.  

I've planted Bee Balm and other flowers for the birds to enjoy,
but these Hummingbirds are spoiled by this plastic feeder "flower".  

Enjoy this video!



I look forward to welcoming them each year!
Rather than buy expensive nectar, I buy a huge bag
of sugar and make my own.  

What is your Hummingbird situation?  

My cousin was picking flowers in her yard.   She spied this guy,
about 6 feet away.  As he made his way to the birdfeeder
she ran to her house and got inside to safety.  
 She sent  her local newspaper this photo,
 they put it on the front page.


Yikes!

  4. I have 2 feeders and 2 hummers of which one has decided not to share. I was hoping for a few more of them.
