Watching and Waiting

Hummingbird Ready!

Hummingbird Ready!

Last August, I decided to hang a hummingbird feeder in my backyard. It was late in the season, but I had never seen a hummingbird, and I was hopeful that I would finally see one.

To my amazement, a tiny bird arrived the very next day! Trust me when I say I was thrilled to see him. Binocular views showed him to be a male ruby throated hummingbird. He was beautiful. I named him Herman. Several birds, including females, hovered around the feeder until it was time to migrate south.

I was excited to get photographic evidence of my very first sighting using my i phone. But without a zoom, I was only able to catch a very tiny silhouette of Herman. This year, I am ready; I have a camera that can zoom up closer to the feeder now.

Sugar-water nectar is in the hanging feeder and I even bought a painted lady hibiscus to welcome Herman home. There has already been a hummingbird sighting reported in my town. I continue to watch and wait. Maybe today will be the day!
