Are You Talkin' to Me?

Summer is long gone and so are the little hummingbirds, but not before I was able to spend many hours on the deck watching, sketching, photographing. They love the dead tree next to the deck and that's where their feeders are hung. They were busy all summer, drinking, fighting with their friends and raising babies. They don't nest in the dead tree, not enough foliage, but I think they nest in the huge evergreen out in front. When they are resting, they are just like any other bird, preening, flitting from branch to branch, and sometimes napping. Way too cute!

Cardinal's have regained their color after a late summer molting,
a beautiful deep red now, but in spring they will be even more colorful.
