Bird Watching on a Rainy Day

Recommended Posts

Does COVID have you feeling cooped up? Try attracting humming birds to a window where you can observe them closely. They even sell small feeders with suction cups that you can stick to your window glass. One part sugar to four parts water and you are in business. Here is a Black Chinned Hummingbird lining up for a sugary treat on a rainy Texas afternoon.

These were newly fledged about a month ago. The male is in the upper photo and female in the lower. There should be a third hatch anyway now. When fed, cardinals can fledge 4 times in a Texas season. The good thing is the parents rid the place of insects trying to keep the young fed.
