Our little jewels are back from their time in Central America and welcome they are!! We saw the first one March 7 and then another a week later. This weekend there are 3 of them. It is not an easy thing to count hummingbirds. We have 3 feeders with sugar water in each. One would think that with 3 hummingbirds and 3 feeders all would be peaceful. One would be very wrong. All three hummingbirds are fiercely driving each other from all three feeders. If you decide to sit on the back porch and enjoy the beautiful spring weather and gorgeous wildflowers, the tiny ferocities will try to drive you away too. And I usually give in so as not to distress them any more than they already are with driving each other from the feeders. Kind of reminds me of people who are so busy making sure that no one has more than they do that they overlook the possibility that by staying with one feeder, there is plenty for all.

Thought for the day:
