A hummer from our yard
I’m talking about hummingbirds. They are so pretty and so smart. There must be a big brain in their heads. They share the hummingbird feeder with a family of orioles, or perhaps several families of orioles. The orioles can suck the feeder dry in a matter of days, so we got a gigantic one. Now it lasts about a week before it needs to be filled again.
The feeder visited by several birds
We’ve been working a lot of hours and that was on my to-do list today. That list was long because Tuesday is my only day off this week. Around 5 PM a hummingbird came to the big windows and hovered there looking at us. I know it was trying to tell me the feeder needed some food. The hummers have done this before. I’m amazed that they know someone in the house will go and fill the feeder up if they get our attention. Now you have to be doing some kind of thinking to figure that out.
Orioles enjoying the feeder
The birds do sit in the trees and watch us bring the feeder in and put it back out again. I guess they’ve figured out we have nectar in the house somewhere. They did this sort of thing when we lived in
Have you ever had a hummingbird alert you to an empty feeder?
