Hey there little birdie

Hummingbirds.  They are so spastic.  The tiniest little birds you can imagine, almost bug-like.  With big, doe-ish eyes.  Growing up on the East Coast, I saw one once in my backyard (I think) and there was talk of another at some point.  It wasn't until I made it to California that people didn't treat hummingbirds like some fabled member of the unicorn family.  I had spotted a few outside our bedroom window and H was already thinking of getting a bird feeder so . . ta-da!  Here is our hummingbird feeder.  About 10 little guys (probably some of them are repeats) visit everyday.  They are so adorable!  And they're quick little boogers.
