Hummingbird!

First hummer sighting of the year! 7:35 this morning, as I opened my front door for the day, a pretty little male was flitting around the hanging basket of flowers at the foot of my steps. He did not investigate the feeder. I probably scared him off by opening the door.

Lisa had told me last night she had seen a pair. They're here! I'm so excited!!!









Not my picture of course, as you see by the markings, but I will
be trying for pictures soon. As always, click on photo to enlarge.

Amazing. Can't imagine it. we're eagerly awaiting the arrival of the housemartins from north Africa. Nest in our eaves every year.

They usually arrive here in southern Ohio where we live (close to Dayton) around the first week in May. Not that far away now. You really got a nice photo of this male.

I also enjoyed the nest cams.

Hummingbirds are wonderful creatures. One's spirit can't help but be elevated when watching them. I'm happy for you that they're back. :)

I love the hummers! We haven't seen any yet this year--they are a bit late but it's been so cold and snowy. We put up at least five feeders each year and by mid summer you have to be careful walking around on the deck--they are buzzing everywhere and fighting like mad. LOL!
