Every year, we put up 2 or 3 hummingbird feeders. My husband and I go through a lot of sugar in late summer, as he is feeding the hummingbirds and I am putting up the figs and pears from the yard. I think the little birdies get spoiled, because they will twitter and hover at the big window if the feeders are empty.
There is a lot of activity around the feeders, and fighting, although the fighting seems to have lessened the closer the time gets to migration, I guess. Going outside is interesting, with all the twittering and screeching sounds of tiny birds zooming past your head. Hummingbirds are perched on the roof, the antenna wires, the basketball goal, in the pecan tree at the side of the house. They are entertaining to watch.
