Patience is a Virtue

And, "If you build it, they will come..."
I have had this feeder for 4 years.
This is the first hummingbird I have ever seen use it.
Stay tuned for more hummingbird-themed posts...
The owlets have fledged and there are no current puppycams.
I really need a job.

I bought a beautiful hummingbird feeder before moving to Italy that looked like Murano glass. But once here I found out there are no hummingbirds in Italy! Who knew?
Yours is lovely.

Oh .. sweet maybe before they didnt like where you lived, I did ... but you know hummingbirds, so very picky.

Hummingbirds galore here and no feeder.
Your feeder is really beautiful.

Mary said...

Wow, that's a beautiful feeder! Congrats on your first hummingbird -- and I hope you see many more. Beautiful images, too. :)

Grandma J said...

If I were a hummingbird, I'd pick your feeder over all the others. It's so pretty and elegant.

Here's a hummingbird cam with the baby about ready to fly. It's in So CA.

Yes of course I'll be at blogfest. I'm quite certain I'm driving. I love to see how many bugs I can get to stick to my windshield. Can't wait to see you! Is Dora coming?

What a beautiful feeder. For some reason, we haven't had many this year, they have been handing around the honeysuckle, fresh is way better than the bottle and I can't say I would blame them.

Keetha said...

This gives me hope. I've had a pretty hummingbird feeder for two years with nary a hummingbird in sight.

Sassy said...

That is the prettiest hummingbird feeder I have ever seen.....I love hummingbirds.....sooooooooo beautiful!

I'm so impressed you got a shot. I'm still trying but the finches seem to be keeping the hummers away. Wah.

Deb said...

This is a very lovely humming bird feeder. No wonder the birds have come to refresh themselves!

TSannie said...

Congratulations! I had one buzz my feeder - the first time EVER as well - last week. Nada since. :(

That's the prettiest hummingbird feeder I've ever seen. We only have those plastic ones around here, at least that's all I've ever seen.

We have hummingbirds here that come out in the evening and flit around the flower beds - esp. the hanging baskets. It's hard to distinguish them from a bumble bee, some of them are so tiny. Love them.

Lisa said...

hahaha....you don't need a job,you just a few more hobbies! I love hummingbirds and we feed a bunch of them around here. I want a new feeder now!

Debbie said...

I've seen a couple without a feeder. Now that I've put out red Begonias...nothing.

I just told a bird not to poop on my car.

Nurse Nancy said...

Too cool.....we get a few in the summer when all the cone flowers are in bloom...they are soooooo neat to watch!

That is the prettiest hummingbird feeder I've ever seen.

I will be looking forward to more hummingbird photos. It was so cold here that I wonder if our hummingbirds survived. We had snow in June and lots of hail. I don't know if flowers were out for them.

Such a beautiful feeder - all crystal and ruby red, I'm surprised it took them 4 years to find it.

Karen Deborah said...

oooooohhhh it's beautiful

Suz Broughton said...

I love humming birds. I wish I had a good place for a feeder...Oh, just thought of one...thanks for the inspiration!

OK Now I want a hummingbird feeder like that. Where can I get one!

Country Girl said...

Yay! Must be something in the air. Or did you fill it with wine?

Donalyn said...

I have never gotten hummers to come to the fancy feeders - they like the cheapo Walmart ones. Bargain humters apparently.

Hilary said...

I love those little critters. I had a wonderful time watching them up at the cottage last week.
