Hummingbirds~World Bird Wednesday~071112
Cathy, the ranch owner, is a bird breeder and she also feeds the hummingbirds who live on the ranch where I board my horses. She says all of these, except one, "Mr. Grumpy", are babies. The parents have flown off to parts unknown. I counted a dozen of them one morning. She has several feeders which she fills daily. It's fun to just sit and watch them. Yes, there is one adult male who chases off the others who get too close to "his" feeder! I enjoy their antics and they are now so tame that Cathy can walk right up to the feeders and the babies don't fly away.World Bird Wednesday for July 11, 2012.
