Hummingbirds Return

The hummingbirds are returning right on schedule.  Here in the U.P. they usually show up around Mother's Day and that's just what they are doing.  We saw our first one yesterday!  My dear hubby had just hung the feeders out on Saturday.  I'm sure with the lack of plants and trees blossoming, due to our late spring, the birds will be hitting the feeders heavy this year upon their return.

And lucky for me I found
a great deal on a feeder

Why did I think you lived in Oregon?? We are practically neighbors!! I'm outside Chicago and you there in the U.P.!!! Love those hummingbirds. I think they bring good luck. Don't you? Have a great week. Thanks for sharing the pics! - Cheers, Kathy

I love to see the hummingbirds feed here. They have a habit of "humming" wildflowers about twenty feet from my rocking chair at the cabin. ☺

Slim said he "heard" a hummer about 2 weeks ago. I think it was just the humming in his head ~ a little brain twirl! LOL I put the feeder up though - but it's still a no show. Wow... good price on the feeder! You're such a frugal shopper :)and great care giver to the little ones in nature.

Nice feeder find, sis. I haven't seen a one yet but then they may all have gotten blown away in yesterdays surprise.
