I saw my first 2010 hummingbird this morning!! Not the one pictured above - that's a 2009 photo - but a ruby-throated beauty like this one. I just put up a feeder yesterday because John David thought he saw one dart across the front porch. Today I added three more feeders and will buy at least one more to attach to the outside of my kitchen window.
Although we have hummingbirds every year, the first sighting is always so exciting, and I look forward to watching and photographing these fascinating little birds. Let the fun begin!
Other "firsts" in our yard this spring: our rose bushes are just starting to bud (you have to look really closely), and the azaleas are beginning to bloom. Each day Spring displays more of her beauty!
