Why do Humming Birds Hum?

Because they forgot the words!
(Ha! Ha! Get it? Yeah, yeah, I know! Corny Joke… I got a million of ’em!)

It’s all for the humming birds this year…

Humming Bird Spinner

Humming Bird’s favorite flowers in hanging baskets on the deck

ivy Geranium

Double Calibrachoa  and a few others…
and feeders in every corner of the yard, filled with homemade sugar water…

 

Sugar water recipe ~ 1 cup sugar dissolved into 4 cups boiling water… cool to room temperature then fill clean feeders. Fills 4~ 8oz. feeders.

Bald Eagle Speck

See that little brown bird with a white head? It’s in the exact center of the photo! Look close!
That’s a Bald Eagle!
I swear someday I’ll get a telephoto lens for my camera! Then you’ll be able to see that eagle!
There is a river between me and the eagle and this is as close I could get.
Another photographer came up beside me, “Did you get a good shot?”~ he was holding his DSL with it’s big ole long lens…Yeah Right!
I had to crop this one just so you could make out that there was an eagle in the picture!
Anyway, the Eagles are back at Starved Rock State Park.
