Default Buffy Finally Noticed the Hummingbirds!

Since Hurricane Irma blew through there is a lot of competition at the
hummingbird feeder. Buffy never really paid any attention to them
before. Today, they were battling around the feeder. She hopped up on
the back of the couch and sat there, fascinated, as they zoomed around
fighting each other. Right in front of her face!

I couldn't help but laugh, both at Buffy's reaction and this one female
ruby-throated hummingbird. She staked out my feeder as her own well
before the storm. She's a fierce little bird and usually goes
unchallenged. I think a lot of people took their feeders down prior to
Hurricane Irma and haven't put them back up.

This tiny little hummingbird wouldn't let the others take a sip. Buffy
watched the aerial battles in slightly baffled amazement. She didn't
try to get to paw at or get to them through the glass. She was puzzled.
I was amused!

That's cute. I don't know if we have hummingbirds here, but maybe I
should put out a feeder. I would think that birds in SE Florida don't
need food handouts though.

Birds in my area (East Texas) probably don't really "need" food handouts
most of the year, but I like to supplement their feed so I can enjoy
watching them.

I'm 99% sure you have hummingbirds in your area. They don't need
handouts here, either, but they're such fun to watch! I've been an avid
bird watcher for years. I don't put seed out for other birds until
winter, even though it doesn't get very cold here in SE South Carolina.

I have a small bird bath on the patio, which I have to fill a couple of
times a day. Birds (especially tufted titmice) not only drink from it,
they have pool parties!
