For my birthday, Papi and the kids got me a hummingbird feeder and food.  We have since learned that plain sugar water, in the correct ratio, is actually better for the hummingbirds.  Anyway, within a couple of hours of putting up the hummingbird feeder we had a hummingbird.  How absolutely amazing!  They are such beautiful creatures that we didn't get to see hardly ever in Illinois.

The hummingbird visits us most days now, usually during lunch and dinner.  We think it is a black-chinned hummingbird, though it is difficult to see it clearly (they don't like to stay still!)  These pictures are from Google Images.
