We have had such luck with birds this year!
We have mockingbirds, woodpeckers, bluejays and hummers. We've had several broods too. A red tail hawk came to hunt on several occassions and caught a mockingbird right in front of me.
We had 2 pair of hummers and their brood stay...they are still here.
I had to buy more feeders.......they are eating around the clock!
I counted 5 on one feeder with 2 fighting near another one.
The most I've seen at once is 9 hummers....makes me VERY happy!
here they are in the rain.......look at this little guy's "hair"...he reminds me of Woodstock!
the rain didn't slow any of them down one bit...
We've also had 2 pair of red headed woodpeckers stay with us...they come eat our little cherry tomatoes after chasing off other feasters!
We don't mind, they are pretty much spent anyway. We had a great harvest while it lasted!
Our morning glories have covered this ornamental birdhouse....these are the wild ones I got from the nature trail.
look how GORGEOUS! The blooms are quite large.
These morning glories jumped the trellis and are taking over the ardesia! I started them from seed last year.
thanks to the rain, our rain lilies bloomed!
and our zinnias are in full force....
I hope you've had beautiful birds and blooms in your area this summer!
