I wonder sometimes at how our backyard has turned into such a refuge for birds. We've worked hard to get bluebirds and although we've always had some robins, now they're everywhere. Another bird that we've invited is the hummingbird. We love the sightings but they're so fleeting. A few seconds, maybe just long enough to reach for the camera, and he flits away as quickly as he came.
So we have the hummingbird feeder right up next to the patio window and
we enjoy each and every sighting no matter how fleeting. But I thought
hummingbird feeders were strictly for hummingbirds and no other
creature would be particularly interested in them. So I was chagrined
for two days in a row to see this most unwelcome visitor.
