Summer Hummers

Yesterday was kind of a rainy afternoon and the hummingbirds in our yard were going crazy! There were at least 4 or 5 that I could count, fighting over the two feeders on our patio.

One of our feeders is right by the breakfast room window. We all have so much fun watching them while we eat meals. Bitty Baby gets so excited and loud when one comes by to visit, that she usually scares them away :)

Here are some pictures of our new little friends. I think this might be the same hummingbird, the one who kept winning the fight for the feeder. It's hard to tell because they move so fast. Plus, none of them had the red-throats even though they are all ruby-throated hummingbirds.

Time for seconds. And, thirds. And, fourths!

After we finished watching the hummingbirds, Sister played in the rain. For once, it wasn't thundering, so she was able to play for awhile with her umbrella. She didn't even mind being dive bombed by hummingbirds!
