Great website to visit is http://hummingbirds.net. Go to the map and see when they arrive in your part of the country. http://hummingbirds.net/map.html

I'm just a backyard birdwatcher novice but the recipe I use is four parts water to one part sugar. I take 4 cups of water, add one cup of sugar and heat it in the microwave for a couple of minutes. I let it cool at room temperature and then add it to my feeders. I usually make a lot and refrigerate it until needed.

Still waiting for my first hummers this year. :(

Ok here's what I found:

Bald Eagle’s diet consists mainly of fish, sometimes making up to 90% of it's diet. When a Bald Eagle is not fishing, it will feed on almost anything it can catch, including ducks, wading birds, turtles, rodents, snakes, and carrion (dead animal matter). Bald Eagles snatch fish from above the surface of the water rather than plunging into the water like an osprey. Since they snatch fish from close to the surface, the fish they seem to catch most are fish with downward looking eyes such as catfish and carp. It is believed fish with upward eyes can see danger approaching and are more likely to escape the talons of an eagle.

So I'm guessing if they'll eat a duck, they might eat a chicken too.

Ginger ~ We camped in Arkansas this time. Next two trips will be in Missouri.

Ya know, I don't think an Eagle will eat a chicken. I would think the chicken is a tad too big and would wiggle around more than the Eagle would want to carry off to eat. I might google that and see what it comes up with. Now I'm curious.

And I was also told told that it only blows in the Spring ummmm NO it blows year round and there are no trees LOL

Well I never did get my hummer feeders out today. I took Miss Sammie on a 45 minute walk instead and wore her *ss out. lol Pooped me out too. A lot of stop and starts teaching her to stop stay and sit. Besides I think it's supposed to get to 30 tonight so probably a good idea I didn't get them out. We'll see about tomorrow.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

We had rain all day yesterday so everything in my yard is a muddy mess. I need to get my gardens cleaned up and ready for some new plants. Today it's not supposed to rain as much but it's windier as all get out and I'm not keen in playing in the mud and wind today.

Also, was thinking of getting my hummingbird feeders set up today. I don't think we are going to be dropping in temps much more so nows as good a time as any to do it.

It really is pretty I noticed it right away and it was in a pile of them but I need a base for it now or need to hang it in one of those 70's rope pot hangers I hung on to all these years remember the macrame ones?
