The hummingbirds have been pestering me to put the feeder up for about a week or two now. I finally got out and did it. I had put it in the garage over the winter. It was full of dead bees that I had to clean out. It’s been rainy and chilly so I guess this job wasn’t at the top of my list
I really love this bird feeder because it holds a lot but it has a poor design as it takes a while to get it back together when I take it apart to clean and fill it, another reason for my procrastinating.
Then hubby was out sprinkling some grass seed in the bare patches on the lawn when this little guy hit the window. At this point, I still had the feeder inside. I felt terrible. However, I don’t know if this had any bearing on whether this poor little thing would have hit the window or not, as birds hit the big windows all year long. The hummers had been scolding me through the kitchen window, so maybe I was feeling a little bit guilty about not wanting to tackle this feeder.
Things aren't looking good for this poor little hummingbird
Trying to get it's act together
"I can fly again."
A male Oriole has found the feeder too. Can they smell the sugar in there?
I got flowers planted too about two weeks ago, so things are looking a lot like spring and summer at my house. Now we just need the weather to cooperate.
