Wild Bird Wednesday #163

Wild Bird Wednesday

This may well be the last shot of my little Ruby-throated Hummingbird friend. I haven’t seen it the past couple of days, so it’s likely on its way to South America for the winter.

I kept a keen eye on the feeder today, just in case it was still around. I saw something with a shimmer of green fly toward the feeder, but it appeared to land on the support pole. Binoculars in hand, I looked closely, and found not a hummingbird, but a cicada.

    • Thanks, Denise. I’m going to miss that little bird. I saw a flurry of green, thinking it might be the hummer. I didn’t expect it to be a cicada! I don’t remember seeing red-eyed ones, but then, I don’t see very many of them.

  1. I think we’re all sad to see our little hummies depart for their trip south…. This is only my second year having feeders, and it’s always a delight to see those tiny little creatures.

  2. We still have a couple pretty aggressive hummies here. I put the feeder out the week we moved in and they came immediately. There are some really pretty ones and I do love to watch them but they are pretty aggressive at times. 🙂

  3. I love that first shot, the colors are brilliant and beautiful as is the sweet humming bird. last week, i screamed like a girl. i reached out to pick off the screen what i thought was a husk of a cicada and it buzzed and flew in my face.
