It’s that time of year again. Time to feed the birds, especially the hummingbirds.
We have four hummingbird feeder and today I counted (as best I could) between 25- 28 hungry hummers. If I have that many hummers in my little corner of the world, just image how many are out there looking for flower nectar that is presently scarce as Humming bird teeth.
I never realized that so many birds stayed in the Northwest. We keep two other feeders going. These are filled with sunflower seeds. We also scatter cracked corn for the bigger birds. Our feeders are very close to our kitchen nook windows and that doesn’t seem to bother the birds at all, plus we get to see them up close. When we go to fill the feeders the birds fly around us as if to say, “Hurry up we are hungry.”
Please do your part for our beautiful feathered friends. Put up feeders all winter long.
