Susan Wheeler and Hummingbirds
Hello dear friends.... Don't you just love Susan Wheeler's illustrations?
I thought I'd post some here today instead of the recipes I was going to post about. We probably all have had enough recipes for now.
The Hummingbird Story? Well, we've had two females that have been around, one is very bossy and territorial never letting the other one close to the feeder. Well, this morning she was out there bright and early defending 'her' territory when a large male Anna's zoomed in. She did her usual threatening moves but he was not impressed and, in fact, he chased her off and she got a taste of her own medicine. Now he sits on a bare branch and watches for intruders. So my new feeder with 4 lovely feeding spots still only serves to keep one Hummer alive. Does anyone know how far away I would have to put a different feeder so this male would allow another Hummingbird access?
Thanks for visiting today,
