The hummingbirds just seem to keep coming out of the woodwork, although we had a cold snap last week and were concerned that they might freeze to death! Right after sunset every evening there is an explosion of activity as they try to store up enough food to make it through the night. At this time they look like yellow jackets with all the swarming and hovering and fighting. We've been sitting outside each evening watching all the activity. I'm still working on that "perfect" hummingbird picture, but in the meantime, this one was pretty noteworthy. I counted thirteen birds in this shot, and there were probably several more hovering outside of the photo. While this was going on at one feeder, we have three more set up that are just as busy!
We also have been watching the turkeys feeding in the field. They are very skittish, but seem to be getting braver over time. Mark came home one day to see a turkey feeding away at the bird feeder which is right outside the front door! More often they are down closer to the pond, and seem to notice me if I even get close to a window to try and photograph them. I will also keep working on the "perfect" turkey photo!
