    We are awaiting the migration here in Texas. This year's weather has been so strange that we don't really know when to expect the migratory hummingbirds and other birds to arrive. Nothing is on the usual schedule!

    Great to have them in the yard. One of ours, the Anna's, stays the year round through the snow and all the rain. anna's male (2).jpg

    Great shots!
    My hummingbirds are still here, fighting over the feeders. I will really miss them when they are gone.

    Our hummingbirds love zinnias, probably because these are some that grew from seeds that Netty sent me (the zinnias, not the birds!).

    Mart, between the chicken feed, the cat food, and the sugar for hummingbird nectar, I'm thinking of starting a "Go Fund Me" page for our farm!

    Gail, wish I could take credit for the photos, but my husband is the photographer/downloader/organizer. I just get to enjoy all the folks' comments about the pictures!

    Super-dooper foto's. We do not have this bird here.
    It is a joy to see.
