GRAND Social link party No. 104 plus a humming snow bird

A humming snow bird

One of the nature centers in my city hosts an annual hummingbird festival the first weekend or two of May, the time when hummingbirds begin arriving to the area. The 21st Hummingbird Festival was held Saturday, and though I was in Boston until Saturday night, I understand the weather was fabulous for the festival and hummingbirds were appropriately honored.

Sunday morning it quickly became obvious the hummingbirds had indeed arrived not only to the area but to my back deck — despite the departure of the fabulous weather. With snow coming down hard in Colorado for most of the day, this little guy showed up again and again, determined to nab all he could from our feeders before his fellow flyers got word of his find. Or before the feeders froze up, whichever came first I can only assume.

I'm delighted the hummingbirds have arrived.

Now if only the fabulous weather would return.

  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
