First Hummer

My husband put out the hummingbird feeders last week in anticipation of their arrival. I did not get excited about seeing any with the cold and snowy weather but as I was convalescing looking out the window one flew up to the feeder! Now the mushrooms just have to come up.

I wasn't even going to read the post because Hummers, the vehicle, are not my type of vehicle.

This past winter was the first one that humming birds actually stayed around all winter. Kind of a treat but I don't know how something that small can survive the freezing nights.

I have 2 feeders on my front porch surrounded by hanging pots of flowers.
I have Humming birds year around.

This morning there were no birds but there was a Hummer Bug on the pansys next to the feeder.

If anyone knows what it is I would appreciate knowing.

It's slightly larger than any my of Hummers.

I had to shoo one out of the living room this afternoon. Feeder hangs under the patio roof and this guy came through the open patio doors to investigate the flower arrangement inside.
I was able to gently sweep him back to the open door with a broom. Dog tried to nail him as he exited, but missed by a foot.

Those are Anna's Hummingbirds. They have been progressing north from California for more than 30 years and are the least migratory. We have them in my back yard, year round. Have to thaw the feeder from time to time in winter.

Interesting.....did not know that. We had frozen feeders a couple of times as well. Little guys would buzz the feeder and wonder why we were putting out popsicles. My wife did the same thing and would thaw the feeders. Sounds like we will have hummingbirds year round. Maybe I should invent an electric feeder that thaws itself?? Thanks for the info.

Hummmmm

Here we host the Rufous Hummingbird so aggressive one chased the Oregon Juncos away, even though the juncos are huge compared to the hummingbird. We live close to the SE Alaska border these tiny things summer here and migrate to Mexico in the winter.

This guy sat sentry in our cherry tree:

Moths/butterflies are a special interest of mine!

The one in your pics is a Whitelined Sphinx moth (Hyleas Lineata).


We see these sometimes, too!

Well, I haven't seen my "hummer" since he showed up. I remember them being darn right obnoxious at my sister-in-laws place in Washington State. Looks like we could be in for some shroons here in the next couple of days if a glacier doesn't float by.

Robert and I have two giant hummingbird feeders that flank our front door.
We never have to fill them... but we occasionally have to trim dead flowers off them.
