Hummingbirds....
#1
Heart 
I love these little birds. I always set up a feeder for them. There doesn't seem to be a large amount of them here in Texas, but we do get 4 or five of them who like to hang out in the tree in our neighbors back yard.

When the weather gets cool and rainy, like it is today, they come out to play. Been enjoying sitting in the back yard and watching them zoom in and out of the tree and coming to our feeder to get a drink.

Did you know, when they migrate for the winter they ride on the backs of geese? Chuckle Troll2

If it is true, we come back, I'd like to come back as a Love Bug...to spend a lifetime fluttering in the warm sun and mating in mid air...oh what a life that would be! Until I run into a hungry bird looking for a snack or I get splattered on a vehicles wind shield.    Chuckle

I adore hummingbirds.

I have two feeders and the locals still freak when the migrants come through.

A record 30 hummingbirds bathe together at one time during this morning’s wash! You’d never know they will be harassing each other in five minutes’ time…

We get the Emeralds and the RedHeads each year, however this past year not many showed up....
I have 5 Hummingbird feeders across my property but they haven't been here in the numbers like they were in years past.
Central Texas here also....

They are amazing little birds. Our feeder is getting hit hard as they will be departing about any day now in our neck of the woods. I have been able to count on seeing them arrive on Mother's Day.

Makes me want to set up a fountain.

I have a pair of short-tailed Woodstars hanging out now.
First time I've seen them and the local Anna's seem to be tolerating them better than the Mexican black-chins.

I love my hummingbirds. There were ten a month ago. All but two appear to have migrated now.
