BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Didja Seeit?

Female Ruby-throated Hummingbird
(Photo from 2010)

It was only there for a split second, but Rama caught a glimpse of the first hummingbird of the season.

She squealed so loudly we thought Dad had pinched her.

What kind of hummers do you see in your area?

You might enjoy watching these big birdies and their babies.
(sorry about the ad)

The Raptor Resource Project brings you the Decorah Eagles from atop their tree at the fish hatchery in Decorah, Iowa.

The live video feed is streamed online 24/7. At night an infrared light provides night vision to viewers through the cam. Infrared light is not visible to eagles, they do not see it or know it is there.

Happy Viewing and Happy Weekend!

I hope your mom didn't do the hummingbird shuffle while she was squealing....Mom did and it was NOT a pretty sight.
Hugs madi

No hummers in our yard yet, but we expect them soon. They move so fast, we haven't ever been able to ID them, much less smell them!

I was outside yesterday with Hu-mom right before dinner when it was warm and there were some carpenter bees buzzing around. Yikes, I tried to catch them with my mouth, but they are just too quick.

Drools and licks,
Minnie and Mack

Mom says every year she's going to get a hummingbird feeder! We will make her this year! We've seen them around so we know they're there.

I just LOVE humming birds... My mom puts up 3 or 4 feeders every year.

Suka said...

We love hummingbirds, and your photo is lovely! Good job catching one!

We see lots of cardinals, blue jays, and hawks flying around, plus lots of other little birdies. Don't you just love waking up to the sounds of chirping? :->

Thank you for posting the live feed of the eagles. They are so beautiful, and it is so cool to watch them.


Gloria said...

Not sure what kind we have, but I sure love them! Happy weekend to you also!

Great photo catch for Rama - we don't see any hummers here, but we have lots and lots of fat robins:)

We have been watching those eagles too - we saw the three of them being fed tonight. So cool to watch.

Wow! That is one pretty hummingbird!!
Do your parents put out bird feed for them?

Kit please try Oil of Oregano brand name Nature's Answer. You can get it on line at the Vitamin Shop or if there is one around your travels or at a health foods store. It will take care of that pollen for you . You will
feel it after the first 4 drops, really!!
Ruby throat-ed Hummers are what we get too and we have had ours for a week.

Hi Gang, we are waiting to see our first Hummingbird at our house since we moved here just last June. We brought our feeders with us and will get them out soon since we have been having such beautiful weather lately! Thanks for the lovely photo too!

Such a great capture of the Hummer ~ we do get them in our garden, but I've never managed to take a pic as they are so fast :-)
Hope you, Buddy, Sassy & Zack have a great weekend ♥ Deb & Ernie

Susan said...

Incredible photography! No hummers yet. Mamma is not sure she wants to attract them with the cats from next door. Love the live feed of eagles!

Sam said...

Mom volunteered a couple of weeks ago at Tonto National Monument and managed to spend her day in the riparian area - she saw quite a few hummingbrds!


Kathy said...

YAY for hummers returning to GA!!

I love the Bald Eagle cam, she is so active! She looks right at the camera a lot!
