We call my back yard the hummingbird farm. I know, I'm a dork...but the birds outside are like my pets, and hummers are my favorite. Currently we have 5 Anna's hummingbirds living in our back yard, all named for Frozen characters. As of yesterday, we also now have a Rufous. It's the first time I've ever seen a Rufous hummingbird, and pictures don't do him justice. He looks like a drop of sunshine flying through my yard and makes the most amazing "ringing" sound when he flies. We've named him Olaf, what else? lol

Here is Olaf and then since I'm sharing...

This is Kristoff

This is Anna

I love my hummingbirds. Carry on. lol

I have several! Several feeders too! Love them. I had one sit on my porch for awhile last year. She was huge. She had to have been carrying an egg. She had no fear of us at all.

Pretty. I like hummingbirds too but it's too cold right now for them. I'm thinking of putting out a feeder this year. . . mostly to torture the cats ;)
