Thread: Humming birds.

  1. #21
    After reading about feeding hummingbirds and how critical it is to keep the mixture fresh and feeder clean and disinfected, I decided years ago to attract them with flowers. It has worked like a charm!

    I have been at Wentworth's nursery in PF twice in the past week and didn't see any. Last year, there were 20 or 30 of them buzzing around the hanging baskets.

    I keep a feeder out year-round too. It's better to do that in the winter when they have a harder time finding food. Plus it's great watching the (male) cardinals come by after it snows. They're so bright.

    I have had goldfinches lately, but I noticed they were gone over the winter. We had the siskin a lot over the winter and originally thought it was a goldfinch that was molting
    I'll have to keep an eye on how long the goldfinch sticks around for, but it seems to have replaced the siskin recently. And I have a bird book so I checked to make sure I had the right species

    We had a hummer on the potted porch flowers a couple days ago! This seems earlier than I have seen them in the past (then again, we are at a different location).

    Sometimes, it's the small things that make my day!

    I put the feeders up and start looking for the hummers when the pine pollen starts filling the air.
