October 5th was the last day that I saw a hummingbird at the feeder. There were some pesky yellow- jackets that also wanted some of the sugar water and I just happened to snap a photo when the bird looked over at me as if to say, "Hey, could you not get rid of this guy?".
This incredible little bird will fly all the way to Mexico and will return in the Spring. They fatten up as much as possible before the long flight. I would like to think that I helped this little creature on its journey. Adios amigo...goodbye friend!
The hummingbird is the smallest bird that we have seen in this area. I want to tell you about some of the bigger birds that Richard and I have seen, but that has to wait for another post. Yes, I do love birds, in case you were wondering. I hope you love them too!
