Any Day Now....


They should be back. Last year they showed up on May 1, and within fifteen minutes of putting out the nectar they were back, taking a sip. They were probably a bit thirsty from that long flight...

This year I'm ready for them. Can't wait to see my little buddies again.

Me too. I hung fresh nectar yesterday. I miss them!

I'll have to ready my yard for the same.

Still so stinkin' happy for you. :)

I still have to dig out my feeders and clean them, but I did make up my sugar water yesterday. My sis-in-law lives in the country, and she's had hers for a few weeks now, but mine generally show up a little later here in town.

Congrats on the house deal, and yes, praise God!!!

They are hungry little guys! We've got ours out and it is being used (I've got pictures coming in my blog tomorrow!)

Hope yours come soon!

Ours have been going crazy over our honeysuckle the last two weeks--you're going to love Texas :)

Oh! And we saw a red-headed woodpecker pair (like Woody) for the first time this week--they're new to our yard. They were huge and SO fun to watch!
