Hummingbirds Are Right On Time
The Hummingbirds always arrive here at our house on March 15th. I could set my calendar by them. I wanted to have the sugar water ready so I didn't have to wait for it to cool down when I saw the first one. I went ahead and put one feeder out in the front. Late yesterday afternoon John started shrieking for me to come see. It doesn't take much to excite us in our old age. Sure enough there was one hummingbird drinking. In the past we've had two couples. Last year we had enough that it was hard to count them. We have our feeder positioned so that we can watch from inside the house. One by the kitchen table and one we can see from where we sit in the living room. What a delightful show they put on for us.
