Thread Name: BS: Hummingbirds
Subject: RE: BS: Hummingbirds
I was wearing a red cotton blouse today and the Costas Hummingbirds that hang out by my Salvia hovered around me as I trimmed my rose bushes! Funny! My Dog sometimes wears a red bandana and they come over to him and hover. He's learned to just stand still until they figure out he has no food.

I have hummingbirds year round but this is the time of year I have many more than usual.

They can get as far north as Maine. My Great Aunt Alice used to have regular visitors to her garden and she was just south of the Candian Border in Way Upstate NY. If they can make it up there, they can make it to Maine.
