Photographed through a screened door. Had I opened the door for a clear shot the bird would have flown off.

It's sticking its face in the petunia.

Back to the petunias


I don't see many hummingbirds around here although the place is on their migration route to the mountains immediately west. This is a rare thing. They don't hang around downtown. Nevertheless I do want something to be available even as the flowers fade in the fall. I want there to be enough to satisfy travelers. Individual birds repeat specific migration patterns. If some come around they might come again another season.

This is the first feeder I made. It's among the most crude and ridiculous. Others are here on this site, use that box up there if you like for "hummingbird feeder" There are nine of them. I think.
