Frivolous Fridays July 26th

This summer has gone to the birds, hummingbirds that is.  We have two feeders outside and for some reason the party place is the feeder right next to our kitchen window.  We have to fill it up every single day (sometimes twice) because those little birds are non-stop! I love watching them fight and chirp and posture with each other. They are really hilarious.

Do you have a hummingbird feeder? I will try to get a picture of our orioles before they take off for warmer winter winds.  They are tougher to get a picture of as their feeder is further away from the kitchen.  I took this picture while standing inside.  Little stinkers didn’t even notice me, or just don’t care.

About ocdreader

I love to read! I always have a book or four going, I have more books in my to-be-read pile than I can read in a year and yet I continue to haunt the bookstores. I have a problem, but I somehow soldier on. I enjoy talking books, so pass on your recommendations and thoughts - I would love to hear them.

  1. I’ve never, ever seen a hummingbird in real life – I always thought they were one of those mystical creatures, like vampires and fallen angels.

    They look brill.

      It was early in the day, when their wings are super loud and all you can hear are birds zooming in and out. I took maybe 6 pictures and picked the one with the most birds 🙂

    Just beautiful! There’s something about hearing the sounds of birds that makes you feel alive 😀

    OMG, sometimes twice a day? That is a lot. We have a humming bird feeder too but only need to fill it up about once a week. Now our bird feeder is a different story. Those birds go all out.

      Yea, it is nuts, they are all fighting and chirping and crazy. We have a bird feeder too, but that is only twice a week or so, much easier!! plus they are so messy, there is seed all over the ground so they can find something even if it is empty

    I’ve never seen a hummingbird before! Wow, they’re beak/mouth? things are so long, they’re pretty. 🙂 I love shots that are in motion like this, awesome!

    • ocdreader says:

      they are funny little birds! I never really saw them sit before, but this feeder must be the perfect spot cause they are resting there all the time. Usually around the flowers they hover in front and off they zoom.

Don't be shy!
