They'll Be Back!


Before we know it, my little Hummingbirds will be returning to the Hollow with their aerial antics and attitudes.  They are such a joy to watch as I sit on the stoop of the shed.  Nature teaches us so much.  I hope others stop to learn from her as well.


Today is Tuesday and it's time to link up with Angela at WVTreasures for her Tuesdays Show & Tail.  This is the post I'm bringing with me.

We have them too JP and I just love to see them! Ours don't come until June or so though. Enjoy yours while I wait to see ours!

Fascinating little birds and very territorial. I've been here two years now and haven't been able to attract one to my feeders. I guess I haven't found the perfect spot yet. Nice photo.

I love the hummingbirds.

Hey, don't you have your first blogiversary coming up? Seems like you started last March or April...

We had a couple of hummers that stayed all summer last year. I love watching them from our large double window in the dining room. :)

I love the little hummers, but they love my nephews yard better for some reason. I think it's the type of food.

That's a great shot. Very pretty. I can't wait for ours to come back too. :)

Oh! I went to Walmart yesterday and (of course) have to peruse the bird feeders. They had one of those big sunflower feeders with all the holes in it! It was $22 but I splurged and bought it anyway! And I know that's about the same price as the one on Amazon but somehow not calling it "shipping & handling" made it better!

Hummingbirds are just fascinating to watch (if you can find them!) I've only seen one here since we've lived here, but have seen many in other states, especially CA and NC. Hope you get lots of customers. Ann

I know you can't wait to see them again - we don't get them in my yard - but I have seen them - they are amazing birds.

lovely house :) I can only dream about living among the pines as I currently live among concrete :(

Karen said...

I love hummingbirds. For some reason, I have not had success in enticing them to my feeders at This Old House. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. They are certainly residents of this area.

Love these sweeties.

My husband once had one land on him - seriously. It was surreal.

Sandy said...

I love your house photo - it's beautiful!

Teresa said...

I just love hummingbirds, but for some reason I don't see many around my place. I think I need to plant some more hummingbird attracting flowers.

I love hummingbirds, but I don't have a feeder. It is on my list for this summer.

It will be awhile until those little guys come back to Iowa... I always like to go to Hummingbird Migration Map and there is a map that shows how they come from the south to the north. It's really cool.. gives one a heads up on when they will be here..
Have a Tiggeriffic Day~! ta ta for now from Iowa:~)

I can't wait for the hummingbirds to get here! That means that Spring is here to stay doesn't it? I think it does! It at least means it is warm outside!

Tuesdays' Show & Tail!

HELLO!! I've so enjoyed reading your posts from the last week that I missed while on a mini-vacay! You will have to let us know when our little hummingbirds return. We had them here last year up until late fall--This year I plan to put out a feeder for them to see if I can attract a few more.

I hope your week is going well!!

Those hummingbirds are remarkle little creatures. I hope you will share them with us as they return.

I am so looking forward to the Hummers coming back this year.
