(not so) Speechless Sundae ~ 2.26.12

Real Estate Agent with RadnorLake Video

(not so) Speechless Sundae...
     Typically around the end of March I set out the hummer feeders to attract migratory birds heading north for the summer. Last year I got an opportunity to capture this oversized and over stuffed Hummer.

Well it must be a hummer it's at a humming bird feeder, Right?

I reckon I've gotta keep an eye out. Maybe nobody will notice that I'm  masquerading as Hummer.

      Yes, I know that it is a sap sucker, but I had fun taking pictures of this reoccurring visitor to one of my hummer feeders. I am looking forward to see what I capture this year...

I confess I no longer have a feeder, but remember the spring time strangers who stop for a fill up on their way north.

Good morning Michael. Perhaps your little visitor didn't see the sign, "only Hummers need apply for notoreity and sustenance." Terrific pictures.

Michael, We get those same "hummingbirds" here at our seed feeders.  Can't say I've ever seen them on our hummingbird feeders when we put them out.

Michael you had us all excited we thought you were going to say you put the feeder out a month early this year and had the 'hummer' already! Cheeky little thing though and excellent captions, as well as a great shot of course!

It's always so nice to see nature right out your back door. And, as always, it's nice to have your camera ready to capture the moment. Well done my friend.

I too thought it was a little hummer at first. It looks like a little Arizona woodpecker?  Cute little guy whatever it is...

He was just thirsty that's all.  I do wonder if I've ever had such a visitor?  So I guess I need to keepa better watch at the feeder this year.

It's as enjoyable looking at your backyard bird pictures as watching them in mine.
