I realized that I have not featured our sweet little hummingbirds for a while. We usually have the annas and the rufous. We have not seen the rufous since early summer. We do have plenty of the annas. Here are some shots of these summer hummers in our yard.
They are quick to come and go.
Did you know that aside from nectar, the hummingbirds favorite thing to eat are ants? We stopped washing off the ants from the feeders.
Here is a lucky shot of an incoming hummer.
They get used to us being around, and even zoom at us to let us know that the feeder is getting low. My husband caught this shot of them sitting on my hand.
Here is a photo of a rufous from earlier
We plant flowers in our garden every year that will provide these foothill critters with nectar. We have so many in the garden this year that we have not had to fill the feeder but twice.
Well, there you have it, my summer hummers. Have a great weekend and be well… ^..^
