This is a sad time for me. The lovely little visitors (hummingbirds) to our three bird feeders have been busily tanking up for their long trip to South America. Watching them is a joy for me especially during our troubling times in this Pandemic and violent year. It won’t be long before they fly away before the weather gets cooler and unsafe for their little bodies to survive.
I feel peace when I watch them as they feed. I have a feeder at my kitchen window and love watching them as they greet me with wings that flap so rapidly that they look like they are standing still. It’s amazing.
I have posted each year about them coming with a joyful heart. Now I am posting with sadness to see them preparing to leave. They are wondrous creatures! But they will be back again next year like clockwork!
Here are the links, and here, to previous posts about hummingbirds if you would like to know more about them.
We have had so many hummingbirds trying to feed at the same time but they fight over space. They don’t want to share the feeders. Alas, we do have three feeders, one on my kitchen window and two on our back deck. There is plenty of room for a few birds to sit at each feeder with social distancing too.
Above is a bee visiting the feeder to feast on the sugar water. Hummingbirds wait for the bees or hornets to leave before they move in for their own taste. They must have felt the sting of the insects at one time or another.
Well, it’s Adiou to these little creatures who spread a lot of joy in my part of the world. I will enjoy them as much as I can until one day they will flit away. I’m thankful to God for creating these magnificent creatures for all of us to enjoy!
Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. I appreciate your kind support of my books and blog. Please come back again real soon.

Good luck to them on their long journey. They bring a lot of joy to the people that feed them!
Yes, Noelle, they certainly do. I love watching them! So sad to see them leave though they must. 💕
I love your feeders! Such beautiful, calming birds. I’m looking in to getting some myself, and adding some nice flowers to help attract the little creatures.
Thank you, Leah, for the nice comments and for stopping by! The flowers hummingbird love are any that are tulip shaped so they can get their long beaks in to drink up the sweet nectar. We have plenty of Rose of Sharon bushes around our house and they love them. Butterflies and insects love them too! 🤗
Thank you for the advice! I’ll have to see what works well for my area. Have a great day 🙂
Yes it is. I look forward to seeing them each year! 🥰
Certainly a joy each year!
