Smile I have two Todds!

Last year, we observed one lonely hummingbird. My daughter named him Todd.

I set my goal this year to see more than Todd so I was on a roll last evening, cleaning out my winter and Oriole feeders and thought, "what the heck," might as well bring out the hummingbird feeder while I'm at it. Made a fresh batch of nectar and hung it outside.

Came home from work today and started making dinner. Then shortly after 7:00 p.m., I saw my first hummingbird!

It was a male Ruby throat hovering over the feeder. He came back a few more times than all of a sudden, a female white breast came shortly after!

I have never had more than one so I'm really excited that I've seen two in one sighting. Thought it was too early to hang the feeder but obviously, I stand corrected.

I bought a packet of wild flower seeds that claims to attrack hummingbirds so I'm going to spread the seed in another area of my yard so I can hang a couple more feeders.

They're so beautiful.
