Puffy Humming Birds

Our Morning temps have been dipping into the 40’s all month. The poor little humming birds are puffed up trying to stay warm and staying close to the feeders. This little girl stayed at the feeder all morning.

I have an itch…
waiting for a turn at the feeder

 

still waiting…

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’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.
