Bad time for a storm

It’s the first day of Spring, but that’s not why the terrible wind and rain storm that blew in yesterday and today turned into not just wind and rain but also snow (yes, I saw a few flakes) and hail (seems like it hailed every time I had to go outside to go somewhere), is poorly timed.

No, it’s bad timing because the hummingbird from last year, that built a nest in our tree, and then had a major bad storm destroy that nest with the two tiny eggs, is back. She has a brand new nest. We put a new hummingbird feeder in the front yard Friday night for her so she doesn’t have to go far. But all weekend I’ve wanted to go out and throw a blanket out over the whole tree to protect her.

She’s still there this evening. We’ll check in the morning. There’s a freeze warning for tonight. I’ve pulled my lettuce and tomatoes under the patio and against the house to protect them. But I can’t do anything to help the hummingbird but cross my fingers. Could you cross yours too?

      I just saw her flying around in our pomegranate bush. And we made sure there was fresh food in the feeder last night for her today. Looks like she made it through. :D

    Those little birds are tough! I’m so glad she made it. :)

    Looks like the new feeder out front is definitely more popular than the feeder in the back. I’ll have to remember that when I’m filling them.

    Also, is it just me, or does anyone else think it’s strange that a hummingbird doesn’t need all the vitamins, minerals, proteins, etc, in its diet that people do? Imagine living on sugar water as a person. That wouldn’t be healthy at all. Hummingbirds do eat little tiny bugs too though. I’m pretty sure that’s what she’s doing over in the pomegranate bush because the flowers haven’t bloomed yet. Sugar water and bugs. Such an interesting diet.
