Humming Birds or Humming Pigs?

Amy and I really enjoy the birds around our house.  I am such a softy with animals.  🙂  Well this year, we saw some humming birds that were poking around so we thought we would get out our feeder and give them a treat.  They told some friends, and they told some others, and now we are going through almost two cups of sugar water a day!  Yeah!  They are no longer called humming birds they are now officially humming pigs.  We have at least 7 at one time.

I can’t believe they can go through this entire bottle in a day or two.  AMAZING!

The cats love to sit and watch them.  They dream of catching one.  🙂  Dream on, they are fast little buggers.  It almost sounds like a swarm of bees on our porch.  Pretty cool.

    Excellent shot. You even captured the wings of the one second from left.

    I think we should have bought stock in the sugar trade 🙂
