My husband, Robert, filmed this male Ruby-throated Hummingbird taking advantage of the little nectar feeder that I placed in a flower pot and the flowers that surround it. Enjoy!

He’s Got Somethin’ to Say!

The Barn Swallows are busy making their mud nests under the eaves around our property – including my office patio. I have a string of lights that runs the sixteen foot width of the patio, and the birds land on that wire to hang… Continue Reading “He’s Got Somethin’ to Say!”

Last year, the first bird that I saw when I was finally able to travel around our property in a golf cart was an incredibly lovely, yellow female Orchard Oriole. At the time, I didn’t know what it was, and needed some help identifying… Continue Reading “Apples & Oranges”
