My first hummingbird

Today was the day... My first hummingbird of the year arrived. Not a very good photo of him but proof that he was here and I just had to post this for my Dad. He's been waiting for his first one too. Jordan and Craig couldn't believe he stayed around long enough for a photo with the way I was screaming with excitement out the back door when I saw him. I'll treat him with fresh food tomorrow and hopefully he'll be back soon.

That is a great picture. I love hummingbirds. Next week I will hang baskets from my porch with fuscias which will attract the hummingbirds. I can't wait.

I'm so envious! I've had NO luck attracting them.

I'm also envious, but this gives me hope! I'll have to get the red feeder out there with some sugar water and hope for the best. Congratulations on getting the little guy to visit this early!

It's nice to see a picture of a hummingbird at rest. Most of the pics I've seen, their sings are a blur.

How wonderful for you! I think it's such a great accomplishment to get a hummingbird to come to your yard. (I have been trying the past 2 years...)
