You have to look closely, see him on the left? The move so quickly. There were three of them darting around the yard. The distinctive little chirp. Oh what a happy sound....I love to watch them, they stayed all day until after dinner time.
Diving in for some sweetness....I boil 4 cups of water with 1 part refined sugar until dissolved and change the sugar water every 3-4 days. No need for the red coloring.
They usually come back around May 1st....it was the second the first day I saw them. I love watching them. The sweet little birds seem to leave around Sept 15th. They are one of my simple pleasures.
