Hummingbird Feeder

I just gave myself a present of a hummingbird feeder to add to my collection of bird feeders. I have a seed feeder that the chickadees and sparrows and finches love.

I also have a suet feeder that serves nutritious lunches to the woodpeckers, flickers, and nuthatches.

The hummingbirds have had to be content with the saliva in the front yard just outside our breakfast room window (we have one who loves to eat lunch with us most days.) But I haven’t had a hummingbird feeder outside my window where I can watch as I work on my computer until now. I haven’t been able to catch a picture of one yet, so I’ll leave you with this wonderful little video from PBS. Be sure to watch for the tongue. I was unaware that hummingbirds had tongues as long as their beaks. And that they lick their lips, sometimes!
