One of the most exciting signs of spring and summer to me is when the hummingbirds migrate north and return to our feeders.
Hummingbirds have a very high metabolism and must eat all day long just to survive. They feed every 10-15 minutes and visit 1,000-2,000 flowers each day. Besides nectar from flowers and feeders, hummingbirds eat small insects, beetles, ants, aphids, gnats, mosquitoes, and wasp. That reminds me, it’s time to freshen up the sugar water in our feeders. Do you have hummers in your area?

Very pretty (& informative!)
OK Did you find this bird on the beach? Well done.
Your hummingbird is lovely. I posted a story about the Anna’s hummingbird on my blog: Sketching on Whidbey Island
What a wise looking bird! (K)
So beautiful, Carol!! 😍❤️
Great info too.
Thank you, Patty Anne!
Thank you! I’m catching up on my blog reading now and will head over to yours, friend!
Beautiful artwork ☺️, we don’t have Hummingbirds when I live, the nearest to them are Regulus regulus , but I have never seen one
Thank you for your kind words. I bet you have many beautiful birds near you that I have never seen! I love observing birds when I travel and try to learn about the new-to-me varieties. 🐦
