Male Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Here is this year's Male Ruby-throated Hummingbird.  Isn't he handsome!  The females are here too and busy making their nests.  Maybe this year, I will find a nest with the babies!!

Female Ruby-throated Hummingbird

The hummers are back!!  This little beauty, a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird is filling up on some nectar.  She just traveled many miles to get here!! She and a few males are sharing the feeders and we will enjoy their presence until sometime in September!

Want to see one of the male Ruby-throated Hummingbirds we had here last summer?

Yellow-rumped Warbler

Yellow-rumped Warblers are mainly insect eating birds, but you will see them hanging from a suet, fetching sunflower seeds and peanut butter, or maybe even the odd raisin.

Drop Me Off At My Den Please

It's way past this bandit's bedtime!!!!

This Raccoon looked quite comfortable sitting in our little wagon while snacking on some of my homemade bird food.  One of the main ingredients in this bird food that Raccoons absolutely enjoy is corn!

Keeping at a safe distance, I snapped a few images before she darted off into the woods!

Did you know:

Raccoons are noted for their intelligence .... studies show that they are able to remember the solution to tasks for up to three years!
