Garden Guest: Bird on a Wire

 The north side of our front yard is a certified  National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat.  Really!  We have a certificate!  You can do the same by providing food, water, cover and places for wildlife to raise their young.  It is so much fun to see all of the critters that stop by for a visit.  I have a series of posts to show you our Garden Guests.
 
If you would like to see more, please take a look at my Garden Page   
 



Another photo series of a female Ruby Throated Hummingbird from late Summer...




This wire runs near our back porch




and was a favorite perch all Summer for these little beauties!




Is it just me or is she looking right at the camera?  ;-)




This tiny sweetheart landed, and then seemed as intrigued with me as I was with her!

  4. I got lots of pictures of hummingbirds at my feeder, but none resting in a natural setting. I would have loved that. - Margy

  5. I love that you've made your backyard a refuge for birds and wildlife! I'm not that good about keeping my bird feeders and bird bath full. I get lazy. We have lots of trees and woods for them though. I can't believe how you were able to get such a good pic of a hummingbird. They're usually fluttering about and rarely still.

  6. Such an adorable little bird. The birds are returning for winter and flocking to the feeders. It's time to get the all season suet out. I'm visiting from Saturday's Critters.
