Our First Visitors!

We have visitors already!!

Last week, I took the time to make some sugar water and hang up my hummingbird feeder.  That was a very good move!

My feeder is in a small grove of trees, and it has been fun watching the hummingbirds fly around.  I watch them buzz down to the feeder and then back up to the tree branches.  I have never before seen a hummingbird sit still for more than a few nanoseconds.

But, last night, I watched them sit still for a while to get their drinks, and then sit on the branches for a few seconds. 

But, never when I had my camera ready! However, right before we left the cabin, I managed to film one of these little cuties.

It looks like a ruby-throated hummingbird; but it was getting dark, and I couldn't get very close.  The film is a little grainy, but I hope you can still enjoy it.

This is the first time that I have tried to load a video onto a post. So, fingers crossed that it works well.

Just click on the words below, and it will link to the video.  Let me know what you think!  Just no comments on my videographer skills!!  LOL
