From Mid March through Mid July our days revolve largely - aside from work of course - hummingbird care. We now are going through about 10 quarts a day for these amazing little avian friends. Yes, I really do love them! The other visitor we seem to have on a daily basis is this "red" fox. He/she looks really scrawny but that's just the way the shed their winter coats. On a stroll through the woods you can easily find clumps of hair stranded on blackberry or other low lying bushes. It must be a relief for them when they can be cooler! This fellow/gal just sits and looks around - does not seem to bother anything. If we had chickens,however,I am sure we would be fighting a losing battle!
The picture below, while not a good photograph, shows the constant activity at the feeders. This is how they are until darkness falls every night. At dusk it is even busier - hard to imagine and impossible to get on film/digital!
I was trying to capture the amount of hummers that are constantly at each of our f quart feeders - but it's hard because of their swiftness! Next year we will add another two quarts I think. That should make room for our burgeoning population!
