Blown in by the Storm?

For the last couple of days the hummingbirds have been going crazy in our backyard - chirping, hovering, darting, bantering with one another - and us if we get too close to their feeders.

It's not unusual for us to have lots of hummers during the summer, but they had already begun to disappear in the days before Ike came through here.

My husband and I joked that maybe the storm blew them back up here from the South!?

The kids and I had fun watching this little guy have his dinner this evening.

  1. such pretty birds. We never had them in Ohio, but we didn;t have flowers really. My MIL has lots (In Ohio, too)- she has lota of flowers.
    we have quite a few here in California, but not many green ones like what I'm used to. they are mostly brown.
