Humming right along!

It’s always such a treat to have the hummingbird population explode.  We actually have quite a few of these fellas out there this week. I guess this means they’ve migrated back.

The winter population was pretty sparse, although we’re never without at least a handful out there.  Now though, the feeders get drained almost daily, and there are many more opportunities to snap a picture now and then.

The crepe myrtle is still just sticks, so this early in spring it’s just a pretty sparse background.  Soon the flowers will be back for them to enjoy.  Meanwhile they’re busy building nests, and keeping the mosquitoe population under control.
