Bird Watching

One thing I've really enjoyed here in my new home are the songbirds and Hummingbirds.  I have put out a couple of bird feeders and hummingbird feeders and a birdbath.  I especially like the Hummingbirds as we didn't have those in Sanibel or in Findlay.  There are hundreds of them here and several different kinds.  Trying to get a picture of them is something else though!  Anyway, I have a Hummingbird feeder right outside my sliding door.  What is nice is that I have protective film on the door which the birds can't see through so I can stand right by the door and watch them and take pictures.  These pictures were taken today in about 5 minutes time. After taking the pictures, I discovered kind of a story to go along with them. So, here goes.  Enjoy!

Ok, so I'm not a Hummingbird but I still like my sweets.  Oh and just ignore that Hummingbird sitting on the line there.  

I get the funniest feeling that I'm being watched. 

Ok, so my beak won't fit in that hole but there still some sweet stuff next to the hole.

Geez, I wish he would hurry up.  It's my turn!!

I was here first and I will take all the time I want, thank you very much!

Ah, that was good.  Guess, I'll be on my way now. 

Well, it's about time!  I've been waiting and waiting and no, I'm not a Hummingbird!!

I get the funniest feeling that I'm being watched.  

I AM a Hummingbird and I'm just waiting my turn and trying to blend in.

What do you mean, hurry up??  I just got here. 

And I'm taking my own sweet time.   

I get the funniest feeling that I'm being watched.  

The line forms here. 

Man, he's slow.  I get so tired of standing in line, don't you?

I get the funniest feeling that I'm being watched.  

Maybe if I just move over here, nobody will see me.
