The Hummingbirds Are Back!


The northern migration of Rufous Hummingbirds has reached me, here on the farm. I love feeding these tiny birds. They are a complete marvel to me...so small, and they migrate so far. It is amazing! I put out one hummingbird feeder on March 1st, and then wait to see the first bird. Many times I hear their distinctive sound and know that one is somewhere around me...before I actually see the bird at the feeder. Spring must be sometime around the corner...I am certainly tired of this long wet year.
