I love these little birds so much. Our northerly breeze today was a reminder that they're going to start migrating very soon and it always makes me so sad to see them go, knowing they won't be back till next May.

Finally Did It!
It was time to change the hummingbird nectar again tonight. The hummingbird activity has been amazing this last week. All the buzzing and chasing, I don't know how they get a chance to sip any nectar at all.
When I was taking the feeder down, they were buzzing all around me, so I decided tonight would be a good time to see if I could get pictures of them eating out of my hand. Here are the results:
One foot on my thumb and trying to stretch one food down to the red dish
At last.....both feet perched on my thumb! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. What an amazing experience--thank you for letting me share it with you.
