Hummingbirds are such beautiful little birds. The first one arrived the day before Mother’s Day – actually we almost ran into each other. I was walking out the front door and I guess he was coming to find me – wanting to know where HIS feeder was LOL.
They risk life and wing to travel thousands of miles, the males arrive first, choose a spot and build a nest. The females then arrive, lay their little eggs and then they all spend the rest of the summer fighting!
Hummingbirds are seldom still – they seem like they are in constant motion. This is one that I call “King Hummer” as he will land somewhere and remain on the look out for others that he feels are invading his territory. Here he’s sitting on a peony ring in the garden.
