Almost, but not quite…

Always fussing about with settings, in the off chance I might get a nice shot of a hummer flying/fluttering about the feeder…I need to enroll in Cindy’s class on ‘How to Photograph Hummers” 😃    https://cindyknoke.com 

This was the best chance I had for the day…was preparing to lift off.

Around we go, searching…

“I only wanted to tell you that this was the wonderful time for you. Don’t let any of it go by without enjoying it. There won’t be any more merry-go-rounds. No more cotton candy. No more band concerts. I only wanted to tell you, Martin, that this is the wonderful time. Now! Here!” Rod Serling, Stories from the Twilight Zone

Heated Hummingbird Feeder by Bo Bolen

Hummingbird Feeder-Heated-SwittersB-Birds-Feeding-WinterIt is 40F degrees outside (4 Celsius) this morning and the hummingbirds are frequently feeding and teasing the housebound cats. You may recall my Arctic Blast hummingbird feeder rotation when it got down to 18 degrees in early February. Well yesterday, my wife and I came across this heated hummingbird feeder. The cord/bulb is removable for non-freezing temps. The feeder is reportedly heated via a small light bulb.

The time is almost past here in Western Oregon for freezing temps….I cannot believe I just said that. Ok, well big, all day freezes are almost past. But, this feeder holds promise for next year. It came in two sizes, we bought the smaller one. We discovered this one at a Home & Garden type show in Portland. 

Update 12/11/17: Bo may have passed away, But they are still in business, but running behind due to volume of orders. Still by check only, in the mail.

Here is where you can order the feeder!
