Upon Hummingbirds’ Wings

This morning I started hanging my hummingbird feeders outside. For some reason, I didn't think they would even come around until this month, May. I thought that I would hang the feeders and it would take several weeks for them to fly by and find them. How wrong I was!

I had barely finished hanging the next to the last feeder when suddenly, this hummingbird came flying close to me ready to feed! He didn't even wait until I had finished and had gone into the house.

I absolutely love watching the hummingbirds in the summer (it doesn't take much to make me happy). And I'm excited that they are already here and were waiting for my feeders.

This picture is from last summer. I look forward to getting more photos this year.

Do you enjoy watching hummingbirds and/or other birds/wildlife in your yard?

  1. I love a bird in flight. Capturing a flying creature with quick moving wings is a wonderful skill. I love the green of this dude. He is so attractive! What did you have in the feeder for them? Sounds like you knew exactly what the birds needed ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love watching nature go by. Just the other day I looked out and saw my first beaver of the year swim by. Later I took a walk and found his brand new house. I so belong in the woods. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I love robins. We get a few robins here in the early spring, then they fly off to where ever they go in the summer. I always know it is spring when I see my first robin. I do enjoy the hummingbirds. They are fiesty little birds and run each other away from the feeders. Haha

  3. This is a beautiful capture. I enjoy watching ducks or seagulls near the lake. Hope more humming birds visit you this summer and we get to see their pictures. ๐Ÿ˜€

      • I got one. We have blue jet, cardinal, etc. But, haven’t seen hummingbirds, woodpeckers, etc. Maybe Texas is too hot for them. ๐Ÿ˜•

        • I looked on the internet and yes, there are hummingbirds in Texas, in fact, more variety than where I live. I think if you put out feeders for them you might draw some to your yard. I didn’t know the hummingbirds were even here yet until I put out my feeders this morning. Unless you have a lot of flowery bushes and flowers you probably won’t see them unless you do put up a feeder.

  4. My feeders are out but no birds yet…my feeders hang on my windows with a suction cup and it’s pretty cool to watch them come right up and eat while I’m doing dishes.

    • It depend on the species of hummingbirds that are at my feeders. The species in the picture aren’t as fiesty as the others so they don’t try and protect the feeders. The hummingbirds that have orange necks are very fiesty and they will chase away the other hummingbirds by dive bombing them and when I am out by the feeders they will do the same thing to me trying to chase me away from the feeders.

  5. I love to see your hummingbird pictures ๐Ÿ˜€ Do they have different colors ? Could you make a video of them someday so that we can hear them ? and see them eating ? No pressure ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Hummingbirds are interesting to watch. I haven’t seen any around here, but maybe I would if I put a feeder out for them. We have a lot of little birds in our backyard and they like to fly after each other around one of the trees in the back. It’s like watching a little show. Our friends that live in the Georgia mountains have hummingbirds around their house and they have the fiesty kind. I found it amusing to watch them dive bomb. I didn’t know about the orange necks…thanks Joy, now I know what to look for. I think I’d like to get a feeder for them and see if they come around here.

I would love to read your thoughts...
