I've seen them in the garden a few times so far this spring, but never at the feeder, and most certainly never "camera ready". This morning, however was different. I was out there, early morning coffee in hand, when I heard her familiar bumble. Got out my trusty Kodak, and sat waiting patiently for her return. Waiting...waiting...waiting...until...THIS! Our "bumblebirds" are back!!
This is the pair of swallows who have taken over the bluebirds nest. They were busy this morning, bringing bits of grass and hair to feather their "takeover".
