We have had snow and colder weather for a while and finally the bears, raccoons and chipmunks have gone into hibernation for the winter. I can finally leave my bird feeders out just for the birds. They are making such good use of them that I just can't seem to keep ahead of them. Sunflowers, suet, nuts and just balls of fat seem to keep them coming back. My favourite hummingbirds however have flown south for a bit. Nothing like rushing the seasons but I can't wait to see the first ones coming to my window and hovering there as if to say - what - no food out for me yet? It seems every year one in particular comes to the window and, as if suspended from a string, will stare at me through the window.
