Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 284: New Hummingbird Feeder

One of my holiday gifts from Mr. E was this red glass hummingbird feeder.

We'd talked about getting a feeder for several years, as we've occasionally seen hummingbirds flitting about the patio when we had flowers blooming in the pots out there. Of course, we don't have the leafy foliage and environment as shown in the photo above, so when I set up the feeder about a week ago, I hung it from a large hook on the wooden fence that we share with our neighbors at 900 Q Street. And I was so excited to see our first avian visitors the very next day!!!

Hummingbirds are just such amazing creatures to watch, as I mentioned in a previous post, and the kitties seem to enjoy the new source of entertainment as well. I'm so glad that our feeder has attracted some visitors! Now I just have to remember to clean and refill it on a weekly basis.
