squirrel VS birdseed pole

Yay, hummingbirds!

Tonight he should place his little paws into gloves. Next day they will be so soft.

I'm listening to a lecture series on ecology and the professor guy was talking about how flying squirrels and suger gliders are an example of convergent evolution.

I thought that was pretty interesting.

Hummingbirds are special.

Whilst hiking through the West Maroon Bells wilderness, just over Shcofield pass, soaking in the lavish display of wildflowers in the high mountain meadow, a hummingbird flew up and around and then stopped in mid-air to check us all out. It was amazing. I have no footage because it all happened so fast.

Time to refill the hummingbird feeders. We really enjoy watching them in the evenings when we sit on our deck. Sometimes there are 10 to 15 or so. Hummingbird WARS!!! The spend an amazing amount of energy fighting with each other. One guy would be especially aggressive, fanning out his tail, chirping angrily and chasing the others away. While he was busy doing that....other opportunistic hummingbirds would take advantage of his absence and suck up some of the juice. The little guy spent most of his time chasing and hardly ever eating. They are hilarious.

We have those nasty ground squirrels too who steal our birdseed. Our male cat, who weighs in at over 18 pounds, kills and eats them. Good boy!
