We have resisted hummingbird feeders, so it's even more special when they come to the flowers in our garden! Hoverbirds, indeed!

I so miss hummingbirds, Mary Lee! They are not in central Europe so I have to resort to the internet for pictures of these wee little fellas. So cool that you have hummingbird attracting flowers in your garden. :)

Lovely. We have them here but I don't hang a feeder. I am amazed at their abilities & their migrations.

Bridget Magee said...

I'm with you, Linda! These tiny birds fascinate me in so many ways. :)

Such fun language in this one! Love "fun-size flyer" and "hoverbird".

Thanks, Michelle! I do miss me some hummingbirds. :)
