Just for the record, Hummingbirds are little, finicky bastards.

Was suppose to be programming all day, but ended up driving all over town looking for hummingbird food.

Seriously.

All afternoon.

We've had a hummingbird feeder for a year now, and all winter these Anna's Hummingbirds would fight over it like it was their only source of ambrosia. Baron and I have gotten much amusement outta this. All day long, our tiny strip of a backyard was filled with dive-bombing hums and snarky squeaks of "get out of my space" ever time we stepped outdoors. They would follow us around constantly.

For the past 2 weeks, the backyard's been silent.

Why?

Because the store was out of the nectar we'd typically get them, and when I bought a competing brand, they would not touch it. Not a drop. Well, the store apparently does not carry that brand anymore. So I had to go hunting. After much internet searching and driving, I finally found a pet food store that had three bottles on the shelf. They are all mine now. Hopefully, when those run out that store will continue to stock it.

Fingers crossed.

I miss those greedy little bastards.

Awwww! ...spouse mixes up a sugarwater solution, I think? I cruelly let him do that part, since I am schelepping heavy bags of seed out to the other birb-foodifier in back when that runs out...
