Yay! Hummingbird sighting!

Jul 31, 2008

Unfortunately I don't have a photo, but when I walked out of the door this morning to go to work, a female ruby-throated hummingbird was going to town on all the different salvias in my front garden. She took no notice of me and went about her business as I watched her. It was great! I've posted before about my lack of hummingbird sightings this year...so I was very happy to have the encounter...

That’s great! I have not seen any so far.  I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Our little hummingbirds love my huisband. They will actually visit him in the Garage. Buzz around him , chirp, and then dart off. will return several times during the day if he is puttering around in garage. Haven’t seen ny yet this year. Absolutely love them./ Have at least two families every year, 3 to 4 at our feeders simultaneously.
