Beautiful Ruby Throat

We have seen a few battles for territory already at the feeders. The beautiful Ruby Throated male can be very aggressive. We don't worry since we set out numerous feeders all around our property. Boys will be boys and the girls are nothing to laugh at, they too are very territorial. Check out this video taken Easter Sunday. What a beauty!

First Day of Spring


It's the first day of Spring and the birds are singing. We have weathered some very strong winds from both the South and then from the North. Keeping up with the weather in the country we see others are still embattled with foul weather. We hope things will soon improve.


Our hummingbirds are back from wintering in Mexico. There are just a few, but we know that soon they will venture further north. With all the concerns with the economy and the weather we must not forget to provide for our friends. It is time to check our supplies of feeders. Make sure they are clean and in good repair. Wish you the best.
