HUMMERS in Edith's Garden
Regularly, Edith cooks and strains Hummingbird food and refills her Hummingbird feeders.
Frequently following my early morning summer swims in Edith's pool, to be helpful, I take four feeders down from porch high hooks and
later replace them high up with the once again, newly cleaned and filled feeders.
About 20 Hummingbirds were present when I shot these photos. It amazes me that they sit at length, leisurely eating/drinking because I had learned that Hummers don't stop flying!
The orange tailed Hummer is the bully; chases all others away from eating.
These Hummers trust Edith, and stay longer when the cat and dog are not around.
The Hummers even go to feeding locations when feeders have been moved elsewhere, looking for the feeders.
I wish I could see Hummingbird tongues sucking up the sugary water.
With Joy In The Morning, I could sit here all day with Edith watching the Hummers.
