First hummingbird sighting…

Jun 1, 2011

Very exciting...the first hummingbird sighting at our new house! As I was peeking out the front window this morning at about 7am, a femail ruby throated hummingbird took a few zips through the front garden bed.

The sprinklers were going off and it looked to me like she might be more interested in taking a quick shower than she was the flowers. She was also probably staking out some good territory. Guess I'd better get some feeders up on the front of the house...Anyone else spot hummingbirds in DFW yet?

I’ve had a little green hummingbird visiting the autumn sage in my front yard for about a month now. He’s quick—-no photos yet.

I’ve had what I believe is the ruby throated for 2 weeks.  I am near Lakewood.

My turk’s caps are starting to bloom.  The red blossoms usually bring hummingbirds.  I can’t wait!

Great news! Sounds like they are here on schedule this year. I have a couple of beehives in the yard..hopefully the bees won’t take over the feeders as they are sometimes prone to do…
