My sister called me this morning to tell me that she saw her first hummingbird! They are back! She was so excited and so was I. I am going to get my hummingbird feeder set out today.
Last night we heard some noise on the deck and this morning when I looked out onto the deck, our bird feeder was gone and the arm that it hangs on, totally demolished! Guess whose else is back? Mr. Bear…he also tried to get into the plastic storage box that I “USED” to keep my bird seed in, but stopped last year when he did this very thing. He took that storage box and pushed it around on the deck trying to get inside it. He bit on it, scratched on it and its a wonder he didn’t demolish it. I guess the plastic held up.
Anyway, when Mr. Bear comes back, we have to bring in the bird feeders (not that we have one to bring in today) because it just attracts him to keep coming back to our house.
This is our sure way to know that we are definitely in spring! The hummingbirds and Mr. Bear are back!
