    Charlee: “No, bird.”
    Chaplin: “No … bug.”

    1. That little dude is from my brother’s house and his Manx cat goes on hummer patrol all the time. One of these days…

  2. Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Scritches to the pups and another smooch to Norman. ♥

  3. They are SOOOOO much fun to watch. They visit the red flowers I always have on my front porch every summer – on purpose so as to attract hummers. I love to watch them zipping around – sometimes they will “hover” about two feet away from my face and I like to think they’re saying “HI LADY THANKS FOR THE FLOWERS!”

    Hugs, Pam

    1. They just might be, though I’ve never found a grateful hummingbird. They always seem so testy in the mountains.

  4. Wetook in our humiming-bird feeders a few days ago. It’s time for them to migrate to warmer regions. For a few days before we took the feeders in, there seemed to be no more hummers around anyway.

  5. We keep a couple of feeders like yours up all year and have a small group of hummers who do not migrate South in winter. They are such amazing and pretty birds with bad tempers and snotty personalities. We’ve named the bossiest one “Dictator” and he lives up to his moniker. Fight, fight, fight and I think they’d rather starve than share a feeder.

    1. Your description (bad tempers and snotty personalities) completely and accurately describes hummers. I don’t think I’ve ever seen as territorial bird as a hummingbird. Sharing is definitely not in their wheelhouse.

  6. We have four large ones still up and have dozens of humming birds. We love our birds.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, my friend. Scritches to the pups and a smooch to Norman. ♥

    1. Thanks, but for the record they’re only sweet so long as you stay back. Dive bombing has occurred on those occasions when I neglected to keep the proper distance. Hummers can be quite aggressive.

        1. 🤣That’s the perfect description for those tiny delicate looking birds! They can be extremely fierce.

    1. Thank you. They are so fascinating to watch and quite the challenge to capture on a cell phone!

          1. So I’ve heard! My mother had so many when she lived up north. We were always on the other side of the screen, of course (no screen, no sit outside without being eaten alive).

Feel free to bark your thoughts...but no growling please.
