Anna’s Hummingbirds

Anna HB SwittersBAnna’s Hummingbird

The trouble with this touchy-feely, one with the Earth deal there are traps. We have spent most of this past year maintaining feeding stations for Hummingbirds. My mother-in-law has done this for years and while visiting, I would find it interesting and amusing, so I gave it a try. Well now the trap: when the temps drop and the snow flies (as it has been…24 and snowing now) then this silliness in me ensues in which I am going outside to get the just frozen feeders, bring them back into thaw and then return them back out to the chattering, buzzing Anna’s Hummingbirds. They hover within a foot as I replace the feeders much like our dogs and cats do. 

I know they have coping mechanisms, etc. But, now I feel honor bound to keep the juice flowing. The cats enjoy the festivities too…visual catnip.

    Yep, it’s a Catch-22. The more you feed the hummers and other birds, the more of them there are. Especially in weather like what you’re having now, when you least want to go out and tend to the feeders, they flock to them in untold numbers. You’re lovely for helping to supplement their winter feeding!

    It’s difficult to quit once you begin feeding birds, or taking “care” of any wildlife. When you initiate any such activity, those wild creatures become more and more dependent upon that food and/or care. I applaud your efforts and hope you’ll continue!
