Little Bird - Big Appetite

For me summer has some of the worst and best things of the year. The worst - poison ivy. Auchh, I always get it around August. The dogs run around the yard and into the natural areas, run through poison ivy and then rub up against my legs when they come back. Man I hate that!

One of the best things - hummingbirds! I absolutely love these little creatures. This year has been a good one for hummers. We regularly get five or six fighting over the food that we hang out on our back porch. Wow what an appetite. Right now I'm filling their feeders about once a day. That's a lot of sugar for a little bird.
