It seems like just a few weeks ago when I wrote a post about our hummingbirds getting ready to leave us for the winter. If you'd like, you can click here to read that story, which was called Saying Goodbye to Our Hummingbirds.
Here is our hummingbird feeder as it was a couple of weeks ago, all nice and clean and full of fresh hummingbird nectar (1/4th cup sugar to 1 cup of water).
I waited and watched and waited some more, and then, "lo and behold," our first little visitor appeared (you can click on the pictures to enlarge them, if you'd like) ...
I took this picture looking through a window in my kitchen, so it's not as good as the ones in my post last fall ... but I was so excited, and was happy to get a picture of him.
I've seen two different ones so far, and hope to get some better pictures of them in the coming days.
I also hope to capture our cardinals with my camera. They're very skiddish, though, and I may not be able to do much better than these two pictures I took a few days ago (again, through a window) ...
Hopefully, I'll have time one day soon to "stake out" our courtyard and get some better pictures. Do you have hummingbirds yet?
