The Hummers Are Here

I know Spring has sprung when the hummingbirds show up.


I set a new feeder out by the front patio where I like to sit
and take photos of the birds and squirrels on their feeders.


It didn't take them long to find the new feeder.

Another plus to this location, I can see it when I'm on the computer
and can still enjoy watching the hummers on the feeder even though I'm indoors.

Not to leave the squirrels out...
 
Only one squirrel at a time is allowed on the feeder.

The rest have to stay on the ground and eat what has fallen out of the feeder.


Silly squirrels!

There's a bird that I've seen a couple of times around here.
I have no idea what kind of bird it is and I'm hoping one of you can help me identify it.




Any ideas?

It's such a pretty bird.  I'd love to know what kind it is and maybe attract some more somehow.

Has Spring sprung in your neck of the woods?  

    

Till next time,

I love the hummers too and I'm eagerly awaiting them.
Your unidentified bird is a Northern Parula, a type of wood warbler. Good sighting and photo because they're not always easy to spot, usually foraging in the treetops.

I love hummingbirds, we have one that sits on a tree outside our window. It's an Anna's, it was here all winter, I guess they don't migrate.
The other bird is lovely but I haven't a clue either!
