Hey Wally! Did you see?
The hummingbirds have been hanging around the feeder more.
Yeah Ernie. It’s that time of year again.
The hummers are fueling up
before they make their long trip down south.
I watched this one on our feeder…
It sat there for the longest time…
drinking and sitting…sitting and drinking.
Afterwards, it went and sat on the patio chair nearby.
I think it’s standing guard…
making sure other hummers didn’t try to use the feeder, too.
Hummers can be real territorial.
I watched this one chase other hummers away from the feeder.
Just like me, hummers aren’t much into sharing.
Whatchoo looking at??
Hey, hummer! We’ll keep the feeder filled.
So go ahead…drink up!
You’ve got a long trip ahead of you.
We hope you have a safe flight.
(Sorry ’bout the quality of these pictures.
The mom took them through the window
’cause she didn’t want to scare the hummer away.)
