Screech has his feathers back now and is as handsome as ever.
The Summer’s almost over,
Screech’s duties to the nest are over for this year.
Once again he’s returned to our barn for resting
and waiting until the next Spring nesting season.

 Wishing you all fun with the WP photo challenge!

Tired Little Hummingbird

Yesterday evening I noticed a little male hummingbird sitting very still on our hummingbird feeder. Every few minutes he’d take a sip and then sit still again. He stayed on the feeder for over 30 minutes. We worried he was sick or hurt. Thankfully when the sun set he flew away and seemed to be in fine health. We figure the little guy may have gotten exhausted from the heat of the day and needed to feed and rest to build his energy back up.
He sure was a cutie.

I hope you all have a pleasant weekend.
