Our world has become full of humming, buzzing, chirping, clicking and flittering.
Over a week ago, Bill and I were both buzzed by Rufus Hummingbirds. It is the ultimate sign of Spring here.
I got out the nectar feeders. Gave them a through washing and made up sugar water. I never use the red dye hummingbird nectar you can buy at the store. The dye is not needed. The colour of the flowers are what attracts the bird.
I hung two of them in the Mountain Ash tree clump in my Ever Evolving Rock Garden and one in the Blue Spruce by the front door. Where they like to sit and patrol their territory and perform their mating ritual diving bombing flights.We also have many Yellow-rumped Warblers. Clicking their wings together and squabbling over the multitude of seeds from the chickens scratch. We have spotted a couple Bees, Robins, Sandhill cranes, Butterflies, Sparrows, Squirrels, Woodpeckers and numerous other creatures about. Once the weather gets warmer more creatures will visit. I can’t wait….
