A Happy Ending



When we hear that a bird has hit the window we immediately check to see if it's down. If it is we keep it warm and alert, we have had very few fatalities by doing this even fishing one out of the pond that was nearly dead. Today an Allen's Hummingbird in the potters hands.




























ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!

  4. My friend was here too and we just kept WOWING over the flash on that tiny beauty. There must be 20 in the garden buzzing, that one with a headache no doubt but I would have been beside myself if it had not made it!

  8. Oh...look at that sparkly breast of his. I'm entirely jealous. (I am definitely the 'female of my species'...sitting here in my standard staid black.) Happy Sunday, Ro! I'm knee—neck!—deep in research and happy as a clam.
