Today I went out to the garden to get a shovel to separate my coral bells & fill in some empty spaces with them when I noticed the house wrens building in the bluebird box that was put up.No bluebirds in there this year...
I went up to the house to get the camera,& ended up watching the wrens for awhile.The one picture is blurry,where they were trying to take in a too long piece of twig,& I had to laugh at the wren "protesting" about it.
So,I go back to digging up the perennials to separate them,& hear a loud buzzing around my head.I look up & the male hummingbird was looking directly at me in the face,up close & personal.I had not put any feeders out yet.They don`t arrive this early here! So.....,I stop what I`m doing,come into the house & begin mixing the sugar & water-1 part sugar to 4 parts water-& heat till blended.I go out to the shed & get the feeders & fill them & put them out.
