    Like a dart hurled at a dart board, lol. Glad your dad was there to give the hummer a helping hand.

    Nice photo Bubbles!

    I haven't seen any hummingbirds for at least a week here...maybe they've moved on? I need to learn more about their migratory habits. Anyone have a good online source for that?

    Try this link and see if it works bid not, copy and paste it into your search engine.

    Great photo, Bubbles! I've never seen a Ruby Throated here....they are much more an eastern hummer, although one is reported every once in a while.

    Hi! I'm lurking ..you..Blooi.. I went to your profile, was going to send some photos of my son...your grand daugher is a doll by the way..then I saw this post! I just put out my hummingbird feeder out again this yr. after not having done so for a couple of yrs..what was I thinking? I love those little things. Besties they are! Here are some photos I got this yr. from inside my window/living room.

    I don't have the best camera. But it was fun..there were probably 4 o 5 different ones that would show up. Who knows? Maybe more. One had the cutest white spots spaced along the bottom of it's tail when it fanned out. Wish I had gotten that one.

    Anyway, back to the pm to you. Maybe we should start a thread on Birth Defects..or handicaps. Bet there are a few folks on here that can relate. Just a thought.

    Doggone it, it won't post it as a link. But there is a thread, Cynthia. Got your PM. Waiting until I get on the computer so I can reply better. Your son looks like he met the world head on, and on his terms! That's what we want for Kendra!
