Friday Fun...Flitting Around and Hanging Out

 

Larry has a prime view from his chair in our family room...which is exactly how he likes it!!!  

 

We have had so much fun watching the Fall migration of hummingbirds as they head to Mexico and beyond for the winter. 

These are hummingbird feeders that stick on the window to give us a bird’s eye view!!!

 

And our friendly squirrel loves to hang out just to make sure that Larry knows a peanut would be greatly appreciated!  

It seems so simplistic and yet THIS is what keeps us grounded...it is our way of meditating.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel posted a photo this morning of a hummingbird.  I commented that I had tried to take a picture of hummingbirds a few times, but hadn't really been successful.  Perhaps, I need to hang out near a bird feeder, and shoot video instead.

I think Hummingbirds are very cool to watch. They are to other birds kind of like helicopters to planes.

Kathy I have three hummingbird feeders, but we did not have many hummingbirds this year.  Also I like the window feeder you have, I need to see if I can find one around here.

Hi Kathy we have the same meditation!  We love watching all the birds in our backyard and they are loving our new & bigger water fountain.  It's so fun to watch them take bird baths - especially the Starlings!  Sometime 4 or 5 or more get in at the same time and water is flying everywhere.  It's a hoot!

Wayne Martin trust me, that squirrel has us wrapped around his little paw!!! They all do. 

I like that quote too Sham Reddy CRS Nature does its thing without the involvement of politics or other outside things. It's real and true.

Kat Palmiotti I'd imagine that you have a larger set of animals that you can watch where you are!!!

Brian England some are shy and won't come to us for peanuts and that's ok. It took me several months to get the first squirrel to take a peanut from me.

Kathy Streib - yesterday something caught my eye out the window and it was a group of about 10 turkeys waddling around. We never know what will show up!

Ed Silva we have one or two hummers that are here all year but twice a year we get to see them as they migrate north or south. 

Michael Jacobs I've had something similar happen here. I may go for a day without seeing a single squirrel. I also learned that when the birds are molting as they just did, it takes a lot of energy. This is why we haven't seen a lot of the birds recently.

Joan Cox I don't think I've seen any bunnies in my yard...I've seen skunks and raccoons. 

Nina Hollander, Broker I hope you get some time to breathe!!!! You deserve it.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I loved Ron's photo of the hummingbird in the lavender!!!! We also were in sync with the pumpkins. You photographed them and I saw them today at our market. 

Thank you Sheri Sperry - MCNE® We don't have the peacocks like we did in Delray but we have bluebirds and lots of mockingbirds!!!

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty good comparison!!! They are fascinating. And, they're very territorial. 

Grant Schneider trust me...he shows up at the fence while we are pulling up the driveway from our morning walks.

During the Spring we are pretty much ignored by the hummingbirds, now we are back to 2 feeders 3 times a week Kathy...

A day can pass quickly if you pay attention to ones surroundings.  There are 4 blue jays that nest on our trees. Finally figure out who does not get along with whom.  Have a great day....

Just hanging out is a good way to relax, Kathy.

We have hummer feeders right outside out kitchen window which is fun, but having one that sticks to the window is a great idea!
