Nature Notes from our Backyard

Out planting yesterday, and I thought that the giant bumblebee that hang around out in front was attacking me.  No!  I was being "buzzed" by the hummingbird who thought me too close to the newly put out feeder.  Eeek!  He took off after a rival.  So happy to see my birdies back.

Yesterday late afternoon the bad hawk was right out in the woods looking for my birdies and I went out and shouted and clapped my hands at him.

Young chipmunks still popping out of their hole like jack-in-the boxes.   Goldfinches on the feeder.  Suet robber still in evidence.  Life is good.  The hummingbird's ruby throat was very red.  Just lovely.
