If you are a bird watcher, you know that birds love to eat! Every day I delight in watching my hummingbird family enjoying their hourly quest for food.
The male is very brave and has been know to fly right up to me as I patiently wait for the right photo op!
Not long after, a third, then fourth hummingbird appeared, entertaining me with their cavorting and competition for the feeder. Sadly, last May, I found two dead, featherless babies who had fallen from the nest. My theory is that the second set of birds are new babies, now juveniles.
