Thank you Lucy!!!!


Switched to homemade nectar today! If it's healthier for my hummingbirds, then that's what it's gotta be! I LOVE those tiny amazing birds!

Me too Joyce! It's 9/30 and I will keep my mini hummingbird feeder out for at least a couple more weeks. With my fingers crossed!


I'm also patiently waiting for a traveling hummer!

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
